About the Electrolysis Registry
The Electrolysis Registry was created in 2009 by an act of the State Legislature. Its mission is to safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of Tennesseans by requiring those who practice electrology within this state to be qualified. The Registry interprets the laws, rules, and regulations to determine the appropriate standards of practice in an effort to ensure the highest degree of professional conduct. The Registrar is authorized to issue licenses to qualified candidates who have completed appropriate education and successfully completed required examinations. The Registrar is responsible for the investigation of alleged violations of the Practice Act and rules and is responsible for the discipline of licensees who are found guilty of such violations.
The administrative staff of the Division of Health Related Boards supports the Registry by issuing licenses to those who meet the requirements of the law and rules. Electrologists may be licensed by either examination or endorsement from another state. Renewal notices are mailed from the Registry’s administrative office forty-five (45) days prior to the expiration of the license to the current address on record. Licensees are responsible for reviewing their license on time and keeping the Registry apprised of current information. Licenses can be renewed on-line one hundred twenty (120) days prior to expiration at https://apps.tn.gov/hlrs/. Failure to renew by the expiration date may result in a fine.
