Report a Violation

Protection of the public is enhanced by the reporting of incidents which may be in violation of ND law or administrative code or grounds for disciplinary action by the Board.  The Board requires all reporting of violations to be in writing and signed using the NDBMT Complaint Form.

Public records: Complaints filed with the North Dakota Board of Massage Therapy must be signed by the individual submitting the complaint pursuant to N.D.C.C. section 43-25-10.  Please be aware that under North Dakota Open Records law, the complaint, your identity, and anything submitted with the complaint is considered a public record.  The Board cannot withhold the complaint or your identity from the individual(s) named in the complaint or any other member of the public who requests such records.
