BreEZe is the new online licensing and enforcement system for the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA). BreEZe allows licensees and license applicants to do business with DCA electronically, and allows greater access for consumers to interact with DCA.

BreEZe will improve data quality, replace old technology and bring DCA's services to the Web for customer self-service. The BreEZe services below will be phased in as boards, bureaus and committees complete their migration to the system.

Please check back periodically, as new information on the system will be posted including the development schedule and how to use BreEZe when it becomes available.
