Business and profession data requests

We issue professional and business licenses for a variety of industries, but many licenses are issued by other agencies. To determine which agency to contact regarding the industry you are interested in, please check the list of licenses.

Want to search for a particular licensee? You can Look up a business or professional license.

  • Lists of individual professional licensees are available only to approved educators or associations as noted in RCW 42.56.070. To determine if you qualify to be an approved educator or association, please contact the licensing program area. Lists of licensed engineers are available to the general public (RCW 18.43.035).
