1. How do I register with the department as a new consultant?

If you are interested in registering your firm as a new consultant, or need to update your firm’s information, just download the Consultant Registration Form and send it in for review. Once received, your submission will be reviewed and added to our registry. If your firm is already registered you can contact the department for a copy of your previous registration. The department continuously accepts submissions to the registry and requires an update once a year.
