Licensed Builder and M&A Contractors: New State Agency Oversight
LARA announced on August 17th that the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs has decided to move the licensing of residential builders and M&A contractors from the Bureau of Professional Licensing (BPL) to the Bureau of Construction Codes (BCC). This move takes effect on August 27, 2018. BPL and BCC have been working together to make sure that the transition is as smooth as possible. Builders and contractors may already interact with BCC for other permits and licenses they receive from the state of Michigan.
For help from the Bureau of Construction Codes visit www.michigan.gov/bcc or call 517-241-9316. You can also reach BCC by e-mail at LARA-BCC-Licensing@michigan.gov. Until August 27, 2018, builders and contractors with questions regarding their current license, contact the Bureau of Professional Licensing at 517-241-9288 or BPLHelp@michigan.gov.
