Board of Mechanical Rules Responsibilities and Meeting Schedule

The Board of Mechanical Rules was created by 1984 PA 192. The board makes recommendations for mechanical code rules, acts with the Department to review and approve the form and the content of the examination, and imposes sanctions for licensing violations.

Of the 15 members of the board, 14 are appointed by the governor, with the advice and consent of the senate, to serve 4-year terms. Upon expiration of a term, a member may continue to serve until a successor is appointed. One board member is the state fire marshal or his/her designee.
