Do You Know the Laws in Every State Where You Do Business?

One of the most important projects we complete each year in the CEDIA Government Affairs department is the Home Technology Professional Licensing & Regulatory Reference Directory. This unique member benefit serves as an overview of state codes for each of the 50 states in the U.S., as well as in the District of Colombia and the Canadian provinces. 

As you well know, there is nothing more important than staying current with the laws and regulations governing the work you do. Use this guide to ensure you’re in compliance not only in your state, but also in any surrounding states in which you may do projects.

This directory offers only an overview of licensing at the state/provincial level, so be sure to verify with your local authorities. Because some states have year-round legislatures, and state boards may produce rules/regulations after the date our guide is published, it’s important to double check with the relevant agencies. We are currently working to update the guide with new information from the 2016 legislative sessions. 

To access the guide, free to CEDIA members, log in here and navigate to the My Benefits page under My CEDIA, then follow the link in the right sidebar.
