Skilled Trades (ORR# 2019-101 LR)

Plumbing Board (ORR# 2019-106 LR)

Electrical Administrative Board (ORR# 2019-110 LR)

Boiler Rules (ORR# 2019-115 LR)

Board of Mechanical Rules (ORR# 2019-126 LR)

Building Officials, Plan Reviewers, and Inspectors (ORR# 2019-109 LR)

The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, Bureau of Construction Codes, will hold a public hearing on the Skilled Trades rules and the following repealed acts State Plumbing Board Act ; Electrical Administrative Board Act ; Boiler Act; Board of Mechanical Act and Building Officials, Plan Reviewers, and Inspectors Act. The public hearing will be held sometime in the future. Currently Executive Order 2020-154 is in effect to provide temporary authorization of remote participation in public meetings to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 by participating social-distancing measures and continues through October.

The Skilled Trades Regulation Act, 2016 PA 407, repeals the State Plumbing Board Act, 2002 PA733, MCL 338.3511 to 338.3569; Electrical Administrative Board Act, 1956 PA 217, MCL 338.881 to 338.892 ; Boiler Act, 1965 PA 290, MCL 408.751 to 408.776 ; Board of Mechanical Act, 1984 PA 192, MCL 338.971 to 338.988; and the Building Officials and Inspectors Registration Act, 1986 PA 54, MCL 338.2301 to 338.2313. The repealed Acts are outdated and do not provide uniform licensing, complaint investigation, and enforcement provisions for skilled trades licenses. This places a burden on the bureau administering the Acts and creates an inefficient use of resources. Additionally, many licensees who are cross licensed in multiple trades have expressed dissatisfaction with conflicting provisions, such as electronic communication and third-party continuing education tracking options and specifies violations for unlicensed activity as provided to other regulated professions. Because these Acts were repealed, the bureau plans to rescind the licensing rules regulated under the Skilled Trades Regulation Act. The Skilled Trades rule set is proposed to take effect immediately after filing with the Secretary of State. The Skilled Trades Regulation Act, 2016 PA 407, streamlines the processes for all license types included while providing for modernized provisions, such as electronic communication and third-party continuing education tracking options, and specifies violations for unlicensed activity as provided to other regulated professions. While the Skilled Trades Regulation Act repealed the five Acts that regulated certain skilled trades, this new Act includes provisions to regulate those same skilled trades The proposed rules will be published in the Michigan Register.
