New Reporting Requirements
The Maryland legislature has passed Senate Bill 456 - Sunset Extension
Bill for the State Board of Master Electricians. The Board
has been extended until July 1, 2013. The Bill was signed
into law as Chapter 163, 2002 Laws of Maryland with an effective date of July 1, 2002.
As a part of this Bill, the legislature had included certain reporting
requirements for both the State Board and all county
or municipal corporations. The reporting requirements are:
When a county or municipal corporation that requires a local license initiates
a disciplinary action against a licensed master electrician,
the county or municipal corporation shall report the disciplinary
action to the State Board within 30 days of commencement.
When the State Board receives notice of a local disciplinary action against
a licensed master electrician, the State Board shall provide
notice of the disciplinary action to each local licensing jurisdiction.
Annually, each local licensing jurisdiction shall submit a report to the
State Board on the number of complaints against master electricians
licensed in the local jurisdiction on or before December 1 of each year.
