We are excited to announce that Governor Murphy signed S1303/A3118 into law on August 23, 2019. Please find our Press Release.
N.J. Administrative Code 13:32A – Also known as the New Jersey HVACR Licensing Law.
If you are a Hearth Products Professional and you haven’t heard of this newly enforced code – PLEASE PAY ATTENTION – Because it has the potential to not only restrict the installation of gas lines but could in the future restrict the installation of Hearth Appliances and the Vent Systems that serve those appliances. The only winners here are licensed plumbers and HVACR Contractors.
The Installation of Fireplaces, Fireplace Inserts, Decorative Appliances as well as, B-Vent and Direct Vent Flues fall within the jurisdiction of an HVACR Contractor.
The Problem with that ruling is that N.J.A.C. 13:32A 5.9 declares that “no person, firm, partnership, corporation, or other legal entity shall engage in the business of HVACR contracting or HVACR work unless the person is licensed by the HVACR Board.”
Protect your business from the overreaching hand of government regulation by teaming up with and supporting the efforts of MAHPBA’s Government Affairs Team.
