Certain Licenses Currently Unavailable (most contractor licenses are not affected - see below)

The North Carolina General Assembly recently enacted new legislation that became effective October 1, 2016. Unfortunately, a portion of the General Statute that allows the Board to issue certain licenses was inadvertently deleted in the legislative process.

The Board is currently not able to accept examination fees, administer examinations, or issue licenses for the affected categories until the situation is resolved, which may take several months or longer.  The Board will continue to accept applications for these licenses, and will review and process the applications up to the point of being ready for examinations and license issuance..

The licenses affected include:
- Plumbing, Heating & Fuel Piping Technician
- Residential Fire Sprinkler Contractor
- Fire Sprinkler Inspection Contractor
- Fire Sprinkler Inspection Technician
- Fire Sprinkler Maintenance Technician

CONTRACTOR licenses that are NOT AFFECTED include:
- Plumbing, Heating, & Fuel Piping Contractor
- Restricted Limited Plumbing Contractor
- Commercial Fire Sprinkler Installation Contractor
