SECTION .0800 ‑ SPECIAL RESTRICTED LICENSES
21 NCAC 18B .0801 GENERAL PROVISIONS
(a) Types. A special restricted electrical contracting
license classification is a classification established pursuant to G.S. 87‑43.3
or by G.S. 87‑43.4. Its purpose is to license persons, partnerships,
firms, or corporations to engage or offer to engage in only a limited phase of
electrical contracting work. Each special restricted license classification is
separate from all other special restricted and regular license classifications.
The General Assembly created the special restricted single family dwelling
electrical contractor license in G.S. 87-43.4. Pursuant to G.S. 87‑43.3,
the Board has established the following special restricted electrical
(1) fire alarm/low voltage wiring license
(2) elevator license (SP‑EL);
(3) plumbing, heating, and air conditioning
(4) groundwater pump license (SP‑WP);
(5) electric sign license (SP‑ES); and
(6) swimming pool license (SP‑SP).
(b) Limited Scope. A special restricted contracting
license does not authorize the licensee to engage or offer to engage in the
business of electrical contracting in general. It authorizes the licensee to
engage or offer to engage only in the limited phase of electrical contracting
described in the Rule in this Section that specifies the scope of the
applicable special restricted license.
(c) No Project Value Limit. The limitations concerning the
dollar value of projects that may be undertaken by a limited or an intermediate
licensee do not apply to special restricted licensees. Thus, the holder of a
special restricted license may engage or offer to engage in any project
authorized by the license regardless of the dollar value of the project.
(d) Effect of Regular License. A licensee in the regular
license classifications, whether limited, intermediate or unlimited, is
qualified to engage or offer to engage in any activity authorized by a special
restricted license, subject to the project value limitations contained in G.S.
87‑43.3, and does not have to obtain a special restricted license.
