“To protect the public
and to serve our member boards
by promoting excellence
in chiropractic regulation.”

FCLB Milestones
1961 – Helped form the NBCE
(NBCE started testing in 1963)

U.S. Department of Education
What can the FCLB do?
We have no binding authority over
state or provincial licensing boards since
their authority comes from statute and
regulations specific to their state or province.
We do hold considerable authority as the
national (and sometimes international) standard.
You help develop those standards!
Services we offer:
Directory of licensing board requirements,
available on-line or in notebook format
Every conference attendee gets a new
“starter notebook” annually. This is an
excellent resource/reference guide!
Networking:
• Discuss concerns common to all boards
• PowerPolls-learn how other boards function
• Help boards talk to each other
Services we offer: (continued)
CIN-BAD - Chiropractic Information
Network/Board Action Databank
• Free to member boards
• Public board actions and Medicare sanctions
• All members have reports –
some dating back to 1954
• Boards can submit to CIN-BAD and we take
care of HIPDB reporting FREE from there
Services we offer: (continued)
