A declaratory statement is the sole means for obtaining a binding interpretation or opinion from the Department of Business and Professional Regulation concerning the applicability of statutory provisions, rules or orders covering Talent Agencies.
A petition for a declaratory statement may only be used to resolve questions or doubts as to how the statutes, rules or orders may apply to the petitioner’s particular circumstances. A declaratory statement is not the appropriate means for determining the conduct of another person or for obtaining a policy statement of general applicability.
Section 120.565, Florida Statutes, and 28.105, Florida Administrative Code, set forth the requirements for filing a petition for declaratory statement. Below is a list of previously issued declaratory statements. Please note that some of the statements may have since been affected by new statute amendments and rule changes so refer to the Statute/Rule cited to verify the information is still applicable. Please note the petitions which have been denied are not included.
