Important Notice Regarding Certain Licenses

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 unable to accept or process any new applications for the affected licenses until the situation is resolved, which may take several months or longer.

Applications and information regarding these licenses has been temporarily removed from our website, and will be restored when the Board is able to resume issuing the affected licenses.

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

Please do not call our office or field staff regarding these licenses. Our staff does not have any information other than that which is listed above.
