Sanitarians administer environmental and health programs for both public and private agencies and organizations in food protection and safety, water protection, air quality, noise, industrial and land pollution, sewage disposal, hazardous and toxic substances, solid waste management and institutional health.

The Board of Registration of Sanitarians protects the public health and welfare through regulation of the profession in accordance with the state statutes and board regulations. The board maintains a registration program for persons meeting the established educational, experience and examination requirements. It determines eligibility for admission to the examination and conducts both written and oral exams. The board maintains registration records, issues certificates of registration, holds meetings, adopts new regulations and determines continuing education requirements. In enforcing the laws in the fields of environmental and public health, the board is qualified to perform public health and environmental inspections and related administrative duties. The Board investigates reports of violations in rules and regulations, conducts hearings and takes disciplinary action when required.
