Registration of all HVACR Masters, Master Restricted and Limited license holders is underway
From Harford County government:
(Bel Air, MD) – – The Harford County Department of Inspections, Licenses and Permits (DILP) has adopted a new mechanical code. The Harford County Mechanical Code became effective February 8, 2010 following passage of local legislation by the Harford County Council. The new Harford County Mechanical Code complies with the 2006 International Mechanical Code as amended by the county.
The Harford County Mechanical Code will be implemented in two phases by DILP.
The first phase requires DILP to train and license existing departmental staff as State Heating, Ventilation, Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration (HVACR) inspectors. This process has been completed with the successful training and licensure of 11 DILP personnel.
The initial phase also includes the implementation of a registration process for all HVACR Masters, Master Restricted and Limited license holders. The registration process consists of completing an application, providing a current valid State HVACR license and when applicable, verification of insurance. Specific requirements of the Harford County Code can be downloaded from the following website: www.harfordcountymd.gov/CountyCode.cfm.
Phase two of the process includes implementing administrative procedures to initiate the permitting and inspection process of all new HVACR installations effective July 1, 2010.
Installations associated with a building permit that was applied for prior to July 1, 2010 are not affected by the new legislation.
“We look forward to continuing to work with industry to foster a productive, business friendly partnership,” stated Director Richard Lynch.
