Federal Standards Statement

A Federal standards analysis is not required because the rules readopted with amendments and new rules are governed by N.J.S.A. 45:5A-1 et seq., and, are not subject to any Federal standards or requirements. Although the rules in N.J.A.C. 13:31 are not subject to any mandated Federal requirements or standards, where deemed appropriate, the Board has voluntarily required licensees and permit holders to comply with applicable Federal laws and regulations. Specifically, N.J.A.C. 13:31-1.4 requires all licensed electrical contractors and business permit holders to comply with all general and special Federal laws and regulations pertaining to the business of electrical contracting. In addition, N.J.A.C. 13:31-4.1, which exempts from the licensure and business permit requirements of chapter 31 any entity performing telecommunications wiring, requires all exempt entities to comply with applicable Federal Communications Commission regulations set forth at 47 C.F.R. ß 68.1 et seq.

The Board also notes that applicants for licensure seeking to satisfy the experience requirement set forth at N.J.A.C. 13:31-2.1 may enroll in an apprenticeship program approved by both a Federal agency and a Federally certified State agency. Such applicants would be required to comply with all Federal requirements of such programs.
