Licensees and Industries Regulated by the Department

As reported previously by the Department of Corporations, effective July 1, 2013, the Department of Corporations and the Department of Financial Institutions will merge to form the Department of Business Oversight (www.dbo.ca.gov).  We urge with all due speed that any person subject to the jurisdiction of the Department of Corporations replace references to the “Commissioner of Corporations” and “Department of Corporations” with “Commissioner of Business Oversight” and the “Department of Business Oversight” in any and all communication, including advertisements and documentation that require disclosure of the regulator’s name by August 15, 2013.  Please contact Karen Fong karen.fong@dbo.ca.gov at the Department of Business Oversight should you have any questions.
