Two questions were presented to the Mass Dept of Licensure regarding the Sheet Metal law. Charles Kilb, Legal Counsel on behalf of the Board of Examiners of Sheet Metal Workers (“Board”) responded to the questions answering the recent communication to Executive Director Peter Kelly in which the two following questions were posed to the Board:
- Is a separate sheet metal permit needed if there is already a building permit for the project?
- Does sheet metal apply to one and two family dwellings?
Answer: The Board reviewed your correspondence at its regular meeting on September 21, 2015. At that time, the Board unanimously voted to request that Charles respond on the Boards behalf that the answer to both of the questions is YES. Please note, this answer is based upon the Board’s present regulations, 271 CMR 2.01, 5.02 and 9.02. Additionally, in answering these questions, the Board notes that its presently engaged in a full review of all its regulations to ensure they are business friendly and in the best interest of the public’s health, safety, and welfare. Therefore, all public feedback regarding the regulations is appreciated.
