Auctions and Auctioneers

The Department of Consumer Protection does not issue licenses for auctions or auctioneers. Licenses for auctions and/or auctioneers must be obtained prior to the event from the city or town in which the auction will be held.
Additional permits or licenses may be required, depending upon the circumstances. Please consult Connecticut General Statutes, Chapter 403 (Auctioneers), Chapter 407 (Itinerant Vendors) and Chapter 420a (Manufacture of Bedding and Upholstered Furniture).
