The STATE OF ARKANSAS SANITARIAN REGISTRATION ACT
was signed into law on March 27th, 1957. The purpose of
the Act was to define Registered Sanitarians, to create
the State Board of Registration for Professional Sanitarians,
and to define the powers and duties of the Board. The Act
was amended in 1977, and again in 1985.
The goal of the State Board of Registered Professional
Sanitarians is to protect the public health and welfare
by establishing and maintaining a high standard of integrity
and dignity in the profession of Sanitarian, and to provide
the best qualified Registered Sanitarians for the citizens
of the State of Arkansas.
The State Board of Sanitarians provides leadership in
carrying out the duties set forth by the Board. This is
done by ensuring that all Registered Sanitarians meet
minimum requirements in education and experience. This
includes, but is not limited to, reviewing, testing, and
registering individuals who meet the requirements to practice
as a Sanitarian, and to review and record required continuing
The Board meets the fourth Friday in January, April,
July, and October. Meeting locations vary.
Anyone holding a current Registration as a Sanitarian
from another State may apply for registration in Arkansas.
The State Board of Registered Professional Sanitarians
is proud of the quality and professionalism of Arkansas
Registered Professional Sanitarians. If you are interested
