Contractor Code Update

On July 17, 2019 legislation was signed adopting the 2015 I codes for the State of New Hampshire with an effective date of September 15, 2019.  This means all complete applications received on or before September 15, 2019 will be issued the current 2009 codes.  All Incomplete or new applications received after September 15, 2019 will be governed by the 2015 codes. 

In anticipation of this change the department has created a program for a residential contractors reviewing the significant between the 2009 and 2015 codes. The program will be reviewed at a meeting scheduled for August 20, 2019, from 9:00am -Noon  at the Bedford Safety Complex.
