The Regulation and Enforcement Division of the Secretary of State’s Office serves a variety of business-related interests. The Division registers and regulates scrap metal dealers and processors, the pre-need funeral industry, and perpetual care cemeteries. We examine businesses subject to our jurisdiction (funeral homes, cemeteries, scrap metal dealers) and issue fines and suspensions for violations of state law and regulations.

Regulation and Enforcement also enforces the Mississippi Athlete Agents Act and regulates athlete agents registered to conduct business in Mississippi. The Regulation and Enforcement Division also implements the Administrative Procedures Act, which provides the public access to the proposed and adopted agency rules and regulations for approximately 150 state government agencies, boards, and commissions.​​​
