Installations must conform to the 2008 edition of the National Electrical Code, with minor amendments.
Local jurisdictions shall not adopt and enforce their own electrical code unless it has been approved by the Fire Prevention and Building Safety Commission/Code Services.
Responsibility for inspection of all construction lies with the local government officials where there is a state approved building department. In areas without an approved local building department, the office of the State Building Commissioner inspects all buildings and structures except those intended for agricultural purposes and one- and two-family dwellings. All plan review is performed centrally, and state field inspectors assist local building officials in code and administrative matters.
No state licensing of contractors or journeyman electricians. Most municipalities have contractor licensing requirements.
