2003 Tennessee Laws Pub. Ch. 381 (H.B. 891) TN Creates a special joint committee to study mold abatement in public schools, which must report findings and recommendations to the General Assembly no later than March 1, 2004.
Database Excerpt: Mold Laws – 14 Tennessee Code § 62-6-112 TN Establishes Environmental and Special Construction as one of nine major construction classifications in which a contractor may apply for a license, and requires the state contractor licensing board to adopt rules establishing specialty classifications that are automatically included in licenses issued for major classification. Licenses may also be issued for specialty classifications alone. Regulations implementing the law (Tenn. Admin. Code 0680-01-.16) establish mold remediation, asbestos material handling/removing, and lead paint abatement as specialty classifications under Environmental and Special Construction and require applicants to complete all training required by state or federal agencies and "keep abreast of all applicable state and federal requirements."
NOTICE! A Tennessee contractor's license is required BEFORE bidding or offering a price, for projects $25,000 and up (includes materials and labor), as a prime (general) contractor; and also subcontractors performing electrical, mechanical, plumbing, HVAC, roofing and masonry are also required to be licensed as a contractor, when the total portion on the project is $25,000 or more; masonry, when $100,000 or more. In addition, a sub to a sub would need to be licensed whenever there are more than one (1) subcontractors on the project. Reciprocal agreements do NOT allow using another state's license in Tennessee, but provides a trade exam waiver, only. License issuance takes 4 to 6 weeks and must be approved by the Board during regularly scheduled meetings (see Public Meeting Calendar for meeting dates). A Contractor's license is required prior to contracting (bidding, offering to engage, or negotiating a price) for projects $25,000 or more, when acting as one of the following: Prime (General) Contractor - Bidding or contracting directly with the “owner” of the project; Subcontractor – Contracting directly with any contractor (not to the owner) to perform projects when the total cost of that portion on the project is *$25,000 or more, for the following (includes all materials, equipment, and labor): Electrical, Mechanical, Plumbing, HVAC, and **Roofing; and Masonry when *$100,000 and up Construction Management – When the value of the total project is $25,000 or more. *Masonry subcontractors must be licensed as a contractor when the project is $100,000 or more. **Roofing subcontractors must be licensed as a contractor, effective January 1, 2014, in addition to performing work currently as a prime, for projects $25,000 or more. The definition of contractor is found in the statute at T.C.A. § 62-6-102 and covers a very broad area, which includes construction, installation, movement, repair, etc. All contractors licenses are assigned a monetary limit and also a classification, such as: Building (Residential, Commercial and Industrial); Electrical; Mechanical (Plumbing and HVAC); Heavy Construction; Highway, Railroad & Airport; Masonry; Municipal Utility; Environmental; and Specialties (landscaping, excavation, roofing, cell towers, solar panels, audio visual, etc.,).
