The North Carolina Irrigation Contractors’ Licensing Board was established by legislation January 1, 2009. The Board oversees the licensing of Irrigation Contractors in North Carolina. The purpose of licensure is to protect the public health, safety and welfare, and to promote the efficient use of water. The new licensure law became effective on June 30, 2009.
According to the licensure law, no person shall engage in the practice of irrigation construction or contracting, use the designation ‘irrigation contractor’, or advertise using any title or description that implies licensure as an irrigation contractor unless the person is licensed as an irrigation contractor. All irrigation construction or contracting performed by an individual, partnership, association, corporation, firm, or other group shall be under the direct supervision of an individual licensed by the Board.

21 NCAC 23 .0208 is being proposed for adoption to comply with a proposed statute that will require all occupational licensing boards to develop and implement a complaint process. The Board is proposing amendment of the other rules because the Board desires to improve the rules by: 1) providing clarification and organization so that the rules are clear and unambiguous, 2) eliminating certain requirements so as to reduce the burden upon the licensees who must comply with the rules, and 3) updating the rules so that they reflect the current reasonably available scientific and technical information.
A public hearing is scheduled for August 10, 2016 from 10:00am to 12:00pm. It will be held at the State Board of Examiners of Plumbing, Heating, and Fire Sprinkler Contractors, 1109 Dresser Court, Raleigh, NC 27609
