In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Nineteen

 

AN ACT relative to apprentice electricians and third party electrical inspections.

 

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

 

1  Supervision of Apprentice Electricians.  Amend RSA 319-C:2-a, I to read as follows:

I.  A journeyman electrician shall directly supervise no more than one apprentice in the first year following his or her initial date of licensure.  A journeyman electrician may have 2 apprentice electricians under his or her direct supervision beginning on the first anniversary of the journeyman electrician's initial date of licensure.

2  Third Party Electrical Inspections.  Amend RSA 319-C:5-a to read as follows:

319-C:5-a  Third Party Electrical Inspections.  The board shall adopt rules under RSA 319-C:6-a requiring any entity engaging a person to conduct level 1 or level 2 third-party electrical inspections of electrical installations in this state to have the person conducting the inspection be approved by the board.  The board shall determine the qualifications necessary for approval as a level 1 or level 2 electrical inspector. The board shall maintain and make available a list of such persons approved for level 1 or level 2 third-party electrical inspections.  The approval of a person to conduct either level of third-party electrical inspections shall not prohibit a city or town that has established inspections under RSA 47:22 or RSA 674:51 from contracting with any person of its choice to perform third-party electrical inspections.

3  Effective Date.  This act shall take effect 60 days after its passage.
