The job of creating a combined application process for contractors that are covered by Iowa Code Chapters 91C and 105 has resulted in some processing delays. As a result, some plumbing and mechanical systems contractors with a contractor registration expiration date of June 30, 2017, have properly submitted applications but are unable to obtain a current number and license certificate at this time. We understand this could affect individuals trying to pull a permit or bid on a job. Plumbing and Mechanical Systems Board contractors who have a license expiration date of June 30, 2017, have an automatic grace period until the end of July when the license is still valid. Similarly, the Division of Labor will not be taking any enforcement action against contractors in this group during the late renewal grace period. Please contact contractor registration at 515-242-5871 to confirm the status of a contractor.
