The NC Licensing Board for General Contractors at its January meeting reviewed proposed rule revisions one of which included a further definition of advertising. The Board’s review was prompted by questions and concerns from licensees to the recently enacted rule that required license numbers be included on all contracts, advertisements and licensee websites.
After review the Board decided to remove advertising and websites from the rule. This is only a preliminary review. The rules are now being prepared to be submitted to the Rules Review Commission and will likely not be codified until this Fall.
Therefore, the requirement for license numbers to appear on all contracts and bids is still in place and enforceable. However, the requirement for advertising and websites is being reconsidered and requires no action by the licensee at this time as the Board will not be enforcing this portion of the rule.
CAGC will keep you up to date as this change makes its way through the formal rules process.
