Florida DBPR – New Requirement to Report Criminal Convictions:

During the 2009 Legislative Session, the Florida Legislature passed House Bill 425, which became law on October 1, 2009.  The bill requires all professional licensees to report to the department within 30 days of being convicted or found guilty of, or having plead nolo contendere or guilty to a crime in any jurisdiction.

If the conviction, finding of guilty, plea, or adjudication were entered before October 1, 2009, then the licensee must have reported by October 31, 2009.  A licensee who fails to report under this new statute may be subject to disciplinary action, including fines, suspension or license revocation.  This requirement appears to apply to all license holders, whether or not the license is active or inactive.  The CILB Board Office has indicated that the reporting requirement does not apply to traffic infractions involving parking, speeding, inspection, or traffic signal violations.  To download the self-reporting form, go to

Attention Contractors/Property Owners/Developers:
