ePermitting Construction Contractors Board (CCB) and Building Codes Division (BCD) License Refresher
CCB issues a variety of contractors licenses for doing different types of commercial and residential work. ALL contractors must have a CCB license, with the required bonding and insurance. Landscape Contractors must have a Landscape Contractors Board (LCB) license.
BCD issues licenses for the Electrical and Plumbing trades. There are licenses required to do various kinds of plumbing and electrical work AND there is a requirement for an Electrical or Plumbing Contractor’s license (as well as a CCB license) to pull an electrical or plumbing permit. Just like with CCB, there are different contractor’s licenses that allow contractors to perform different types of electrical and plumbing work. In the BCD license software, BCD and CCB licenses are linked so if someone has a valid BCD Contractors license, they also must have a valid CCB license. However, having a valid CCB license does not guarantee that someone also has a valid BCD license, so you should always check an electrical or plumbing contractors BCD license before issuing a trade permit.
Online, through ACA, to pull an electrical or plumbing permit you must have an electrical or plumbing contractors license associated with your online account (the system does not, however, verify that a contractor is working within the scope of their license so if someone has a limited contractors license you may want to double check the scope of permitted work). Online, to pull a structural or mechanical permit, you must have a CCB, Architects, or Engineers license. Both CCB and BCD licenses are updated daily in ePermitting.
