Consumer Protection is our Mission.
The Examining Board of Plumbers licenses, registers, and regulates plumbers, apprentices, and plumbing contractors. The board does not regulate pipefitters, drain cleaners, and gas pipe installers. They conduct regular inspections of the installations that they regulate, and review special requests for exceptions to the code. The board’s mission is to protect the health of the public by enforcing the state plumbing statutes. The board is made up of eight professional and public members that are appointed by the governor.
On Friday, January 25, 2013, the Board transitioned to a new testing agency, PSI. This office has transferred currently approved exam candidate files to PSI.
We do not foresee any transition difficulties or examination delays, however, if you are unable to schedule an examination with PSI, contact the Office of Licensing at 303-894-7800.
The Division is now called the Division of Professions and Occupations, effective August 8, 2012. To help our consumers and licensees more readily locate and utilize our services, the legislature passed House Bill 12-1055 during the 2012 legislative session. Please note, the Division of Professions and Occupations will still be housed within the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA). Services the Division currently offers will remain the same.
The Examining Board of Plumbers will issue permits under a new rate beginning September 15, 2012. Note the fee change on page two of the permit form and as indicated in the eUpdate.

Applications to register and terminate apprentices are available for Plumbing Contractors to download from our website. The registration and termination cards have been discontinued. Go to the Plumbing Professionals page for the Application for Apprentice Registration or Termination. We hope that you will find this is a more efficient way to manage apprentice registration and/or termination.
Legislation passed during the Legislative Session impacts the Division of Professions and Occupations. The Division is developing an implementation process at this time. Please check back in the near future to learn about any changes to rules, requirements and important deadlines.
