Construction Supervisor Licenses: 

Question:    What can I do in the interim as the Department catches-up with outstanding license applications?

Answer for renewal license applications: 

If you are attempting to secure a building permit or must otherwise demonstrate that you possess a valid license, you may provide a copy of the cancelled check that was forwarded with your renewal application to the municipal building official or other inquiring party.  If the check has been received and cashed, the license will follow.  The only reason a license may not be issued would be if the Department has received a complaint against the licensee.  Otherwise, the license will be issued as soon as possible.  Complaint histories may be checked through the Department’s License Look-up Section on the main page of the website.

The Department has asked municipal building officials to honor this method until we are able to catch-up with the accumulation of license applications.  Once the construction supervisor license is issued, you should provide a copy to the municipal building official so that he\she may add it to the building permit file.  Also, we have asked municipal building officials to annotate the building permit file to document why the permit was issued without a copy of a current license and to retain a copy of this notice with each file if this method is employed. 

Once things return back to normal, this process should cease immediately.  Please note that this does not pertain to Home Improvement Contractor Registrations. 

Answer for new license applications: 

Since other factors are involved with issuing a new license, building officials and\or others should not accept anything other than the license card itself to demonstrate compliance with license regulations.  Cancelled checks or other compliance methods should not be accepted.

 

 

Engineering Licenses: 

Question:    What can I do in the interim as the Department catches-up with outstanding license applications?

Answer for renewal license applications: 

If you have submitted payment and can provide a copy of the cancelled check and all the necessary prerequisites that you needed for renewal, the Department asks that employers honor these as proof that the renewal process has begun until the Department is able to catch up with the accumulation of license renewal applications. The employer may look up on the Department’s License Look-up Section on the main page of the website to verify that a license has expired.

Once again, if the check has been received and cashed and all the required prerequisites are satisfied, the license will follow.
