Michigan Electrical Law

 Home Page - Electrical Law - Labor Law

The State of Michigan requires (with a few exceptions) that anyone performing electrical work shall be properly licensed to do so. The laws requiring this are:

In all of these laws, the stated purpose is to establish standards for the electrical industry to ensure the safeguard of persons and property and the public welfare. A key factor in accomplishing these safeguards is ensuring that properly trained and licensed individuals are performing electrical construction.

The Electrical Administrative Act is very specific when it describes what credentials a person is required to possess before they are permitted to perform electrical work.

With a few exceptions, no electrical work is to be performed unless the person or persons performing the installation are properly licensed by the State of Michigan or a municipality, which has licensing authority.

Unlicensed individuals MUST:

  • Be registered as apprentices and...
  • Work under the direct personal supervision of a Journeyman or Master electrician licensed in the State of Michigan.

I will be posting additional information here in the future covering the laws and their enforcment in more detail.
