About Us

The Iowa Professional Licensing & Regulation Bureau (originally a division itself created in 1986 by state reorganization) became a bureau of the Iowa Division of Banking in July 2006.  The division is headed by the Superintendent of Banking who appoints and supervises staff that provides administrative support and coordinates activities for six professional licensing boards.  Each board is responsible for establishing and enforcing standards for licensure, certification, or registration, and investigating complaints. The standards generally include initial education, experience, an examination, continuing education, and practice review.

The six professional licensing boards are:

  • Accountancy Examining Board
  • Architectural Examining Board
  • Engineering and Land Surveying Examining Board
  • Interior Design Examining Board
  • Landscape Architectural Examining Board
  • Real Estate Commission

The Real Estate Appraiser Examining Board moved from PLB to the Iowa Division of Banking, Finance Bureau on January 1, 2017.

Boards are generally made up of five from the profession and two public members (not from the profession).  There are approximately 32,000 licensees located both in-state and out-of-state.

PLB: Protecting the public through licensing and regulation of defined professionals in the State of Iowa.
