Inspections Are the Law
Generally, Minnesota law requires all electrical work to be performed by licensed, bonded and insured electrical contractors and their employees. Homeowners, with strict limitations, are exempt from licensing, but not from inspections. A separate request for electrical inspection form with the required fees must be submitted to the Department of Labor and Industry at or before commencements of any electrical installation. If you have had electrical circuits added, extended or altered, you should have also had a visit from your local electrical inspector. The state of Minnesota has high wiring standards, which are in the best interest of you, your family and your employees. Improper wiring can damage your property and equipment and injure or kill the people you love. To find out more about the requirements for electrical inspections, how to file a request for electrical inspection or to find your local electrical inspector, visit the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry's website.
