Joe,
As I understand it, the current MA law allows anyone to install telecommunications wiring, i.e. phone and networking. No license is required. The new laws will require a license for this. Further this will be a separate license from the current A, B, C and D categories. However, holders of these licenses will be grandfathered and therefore allowed to do (continue to do)telecommunications wiring under their existing A, B, C or D license. Have I got this right? Is this legislation pending or is it now law? BTW, I like it, thanks for the info

I have another related question. Current law does not require a license to perform telecommunications wiring. Is an electrical permit required for telecommunications wiring? Will this situation be affected by the new laws?

Best to research here: I don't have the answers for all of your questions.

Also, It's the Law! On July 31, the Massachusetts Legislature passed a law mandating a minimum of 10-hours of OSHA safety training for all who are employed on a public job site.

That means project managers, superintendents and engineers as well as trade workers.
