Plumbing Tickets
As of January 30, 2009, the Massachusetts Board of State Examiners of Plumbers and Gas Fitters (the "Board") will be issuing written citations for violations of its present Rules and Regulations. These citations will be issued on jobsites by Board inspectors.

In the event you are issued a written citation you may settle the matter by paying the fine indicated or you can request in writing to appear before the Board to review the alleged violation.

This new initiative instituted by the Board is in response to the continuing effort of the Board to protect the public health and safety. This initiative also is part of the Board's efforts to work with the Task Force on the Underground Economy in attacking the problem of unlicensed practice of the plumbing profession and other professions.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.
