The Department of Consumer Affairs is very excited to announce that a new online program is coming that will revolutionize the way we do business, the way our licensees and license applicants do business with us, and the way consumers interact with us. It's called BreEZe - BreEZe, because many of the tasks that were paper-based and took some time and effort to complete will now be a, well, BreEZe. Once completed, BreEZe will be the largest online enterprise licensing and enforcement solution in the world, bringing with it improved access to our services, greater ease of use for our stakeholders and improved back-office functionality that will greatly enhance our licensing and enforcement efficiency.

Please check back periodically, as we will be posting new information on the system itself, our development schedule, and how to use it when it becomes available. If you have questions regarding BreEZe, please send an email to
