  • New York State "Licensed" Groomers

    I had a caller today inform me that early 2016 NY state did pass the bill to license groomers, and it was filed with the Secretary of State of NY July 19, 2016, and it said in 180 days, mid January 2017, the licensing would be law.

    Any New York groomers heard anything about about how it is being enacted, contacting groomers etc? Thanks.

    So far it doesn't sound like they are licensed as a profession, but there is a permit for all grooming businesses in NYC? https://www1.nyc.gov/nycbusiness/des...t-permit/apply

      This is the first I have heard that it passed, I am on Long Island but have not yet seen anything on what we may need to do in regards to the new law. Will have to do some looking around to see if I can find out what we may have to do.

        Applies to mobile groomers as well as retail and pet salons. Don't know if it applies to house call groomers. $40 annual fee.

          ok now we just have to see how they roll this out, as I have not seen anywhere on the state website to apply or the steps necessary to get this license. no notifications have been sent to my business as of yet. will keep everyone posted.

            To my knowledge the way I interpreted it was that it only applied to the city. There are tons of laws and regulations here in NY that are only enforced in the city. Sometimes i wonder why they don't just branch of from central and upstate NY yet as it is like a completely different State down there. I will DEFINITELY have to look into it more carefully.

                The only other regulation that is current is DEC and pesticides being used.

                    Ok, so I just got off the phone with my State Assembly. The bill in question is S01569. It is currently on the committee as of the 10th of January. If it passes the committee it will go to the Senate floor and Assembly for vote, and then go from there. She is also looking into the difference between the regulations in NYC and how they apply to update and will contact me with the info, though she feels it is like i stated, a regulation that only applies to the city. If you would like to follow this bill here is a link below.

                      yep NY will keep you guessing, I had seen the permit for NYC only but I think this other bill will try to include everyone from the state. I know there was also something that was being set up for Suffolk county but did not cover Nassau county where I live and work.

                        You're right MonyJJ, it will include the entire state and will have everything included from certification and licensing, to how animals are housed and handled and yearly inspections. the industry created the PPGA (I think that's right) in anticipation for legislation and to try to stay ahead of it and get groomers aware and even offer their own safety certifications for salons. I have been pushing my boss to try to get the safety certification, but we will see.

                          I think it is only the city which then means the profession is not licensed like other professions, it is more of a simple permit with a lot of paperwork. So we really cannot say the profession is licensed vocationally in any state still.

                            I asked a gal friend in NY and she said no contact yet but she asked and it is only for NYC. So no the profession not licensed as said here.

                              And if a groomer gets into trouble, then they enforce and say where is your permit? I wonder.
