All North Carolina general contractors must include their state general contractor license number on everything.
The new regulation, 21 NCAC 12.0501, states: “license numbers shall be included on all contracts, advertisements and licensee websites.”
Lawyer Paul E. Davis from Conner Gwyn Schenck PLCC suggests contractors include their license number on contracts, subcontracts, business cards, project and vehicle signs, websites, advertisements, E-mail signature blocks, and letterhead and stationary.
“The NC Licensing Board for General Contractors will likely be taking a lenient approach to stationery and business cards until you run out of stock,” Davis wrote in a bulletin.
The new regulation is part of a larger re-write of the NC GC Licensing Board Regulations in Title 21, Chapter 12 of the NC Administrative Code.cgc schenck
