South Dakota Board of Barber Examiners

South Dakota Laws and Rules

The laws of South Dakota governing barbers and barbershops are in South Dakota Codified Law (SDCL) Chapter 36-14.

The Administrative Rules of South Dakota (ARSD) governing barbers and barbershops are 20:39 and 64:06:02:07.

From time to time, the South Dakota Board of Barber Examiners proposes changes to existing statutes or rules.

At the June 13, 2016 meeting, the Board voted to proceed with eliminating the apprenticeship licensure and eliminating licensure by reciprocity, changing to licensure by endorsement with other states, pending the South Dakota legislative process.
