What is CORE?
The Comprehensive Online Regulatory & Enforcement (CORE) website is managed by the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance. You may visit this secure site at https://core.tn.gov. CORE allows you to apply for or renew a license, registration, or permit for the Regulatory Boards division, State Fire Marshal’s Office, and some Insurance divisions. CORE also allows consumers to file and manage a complaint against a licensed individual or organization or lookup a license using CORE Verify.
