Board of State Examiners of Electricians

The primary mission of the Board is to protect the citizens of Massachusetts by establishing standards for persons performing electrical installations. We examine and license candidates and enforce the regulations and general laws relative to electrical installations in Massachusetts.

Examiners licensed by the board assist local wiring inspectors in mediating code disputes between licensees and wiring inspectors. The Examiners also perform fire investigations under the direction of the State Fire Marshal to determine if electricity could have contributed to the cause. Finally, the Board of Electricians' Appeals issues informal opinions and conducts formal hearings in matters of dispute based upon decisions rendered by local wiring inspectors.
