Advisory Regarding Electrical Installations completed without required permits and inspections
The following advisory was voted to be issued by the Board of State Examiners of Electricians ("Board") at its regular meeting held on October 26, 2020.
The Board has voted to issue this advisory to remind inspectors of wires that all building and dwelling electrical modifications that have been completed without legally required permits and required inspections are not approvable, inspectors of wires do not have the authority to issue a permit, override, or otherwise approve work that was done in violation of board rules and regulations (237 CMR et. al.). Failure to do so may subject the inspector of wire's electrical license to disciplinary action up to and including revocation.
