Licensing Requirements for AV Companies
A State-by-State Legislative Update
Compiled by InfoComm for its Members
Updated October 2005
Worried about licensing requirements in your state and how they may affect your business? Need information but don’t know where to get it?
Questions are commonly raised regarding licensing, especially concerning why various levels of government either have a license requirement or are contemplating adding a license. The protection of the public’s health, safety and welfare is usually the main driver for licensing. Safety is everyone’s business, and in some cases, the licensing of well-qualified professionals provides an added level of comfort for the average consumer.
Members of InfoComm International can now enjoy an important new service provided by the association. This up-to-date directory summarizes in simple terms state-by-state licensing requirements. Every effort has been made to ensure the information in this database is current. The information has been reviewed, cross-referenced and discussed at various state levels; however, you may have questions about specific interpretations regarding work and applicable systems. To discuss any specific licensing issue, feel free to e-mail email@example.com. Richard E. Reed, RCDD/OSP Specialist and Consultant to InfoComm International’s Government Relations program, will be in touch with you promptly.
The information contained in this licensing database is strictly for informational purposes, and it is not intended to be legal advice. In some states, you may find that local authorities having jurisdiction may have more stringent standards that vary from the state requirements. It is important to pay particular attention to the Low Voltage-Limited Energy license requirements, as these licenses vary by interpretation, voltage and system being installed or maintained, and may also be affected by other licenses that may take precedent.
If you have any questions about the newly launched Government Relations program at InfoComm, please contact Betsy Jaffe, Director of Public Relations, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 703.279.6385.
