Effective March 17, 2020, NCMB is operating but its Raleigh offices are closed to visitors. Read More
To protect against the spread of COVID-19, NCMB has closed its offices at 1203 Front Street in Raleigh to all visitors. NCMB will continue to accept deliveries in the vestibule at the front entrance and through the mail slots.
NOTE: Most NCMB staff are telecommuting. This has disrupted normal business processes, and delays are expected. Please be patient with us during these unprecedented times.
The NC General Assembly enacted NCGS 90-677, the Polysomnography Practice Act, on October 1, 2009. The statute requires the NC Medical Board to establish a registry of sleep techs. The Polysomnography Practice Act makes it unlawful, beginning January 1, 2012, for any unregistered sleep tech to practice polysomnography, represent themselves as someone credentialed to practice polysomnography or use the title “Registered Polysomnographic Technologist.”
Registrants must provide:
Their full legal name
Their complete address and current telephone number
The Medical Board will verify the sleep tech’s credentials with the BRPT. If the NCMB is unable to verify that a registrant is currently credentialed by the BRPT, the sleep tech may be required to provide a copy of his or her certificate.
