The Bureau of Professional Licensing (BPL) within the state of Michigan's Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) is moving to a new online licensing and regulatory database for health and occupational professions, called Michigan Professional Licensing User System (MiPlus).
BPL's tentative launch date for this Phase 2 of the new system is May 6, 2019. This phase involves the 12 professions listed in the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). In order to allow time for migration of current licensing records into the new system, their office will be unable to process license applications, license renewals, or changes to licenses between April 12, 2019 and May 6, 2019, for these professions only.
The BPL has created a frequently asked questions document available here that provides answers to questions regarding the conversion to the new system. If you have any additional questions or concerns regarding the transition, please do not hesitate to contact them at 517/241-0199 or BPLHelp@michigan.gov.
As they get closer to the launch date, they will post additional information and instructional videos on their MiPlus website (www.michigan.gov/miplus).
