Company Description:

The Construction Industries Board (“CIB”) is a self-funded, non-appropriated state agency whose work is essential and whose mission is critical to the protection of the health, safety and welfare of the public. The CIB receives no federal funds and is funded by occupational fees, pursuant to the related statutory trade regulatory acts and administrative rules as adopted through the legislative rulemaking process of the Administrative Procedure Act.

The CIB consists of seven (7) board members each appointed by the Governor, with the advice and consent of the Senate, for a term of four (4) years. The contractor board members are Oklahoma business owners and all of the board members are business-minded people applying business principles to the operations of the CIB. The CIB board members and the trade committee members serve without compensation, except they may receive mileage reimbursement pursuant to the State Travel Reimbursement Act.

The CIB is the statutorily created state agency charged with regulating, through licensing, registration, inspection and enforcement, the Plumbing License Law of 1955, the Oklahoma Inspectors Act, the Electrical License Act, the Mechanical Licensing Act, the Home Inspection Licensing Act, the Roofing Contractor Registration Act, and the Construction Industries Board Act. These regulatory acts help to ensure Oklahoma’s citizenry that professionals performing the complex tasks required for installation, repair or remodel work have met the statewide minimum competency required by statute to perform skilled trade, or craft trade work providing a safer edifice for life and property, including protecting areas such as our public water supply.

The CIB board functions as the umbrella board over the various skilled trade examining committees. The CIB board is unlike other state boards and commissions in that the administrative regulatory decisions it makes over the different skilled trade committees administrative proceedings (plumbing, electrical, mechanical, roofing, building and construction inspectors, and home inspectors) cannot consist of a majority of market participants due to the various and separate trades represented on the CIB board, thereby inherently protecting itself from anti-competitive and anti-trust challenges. An Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) presides over all administrative hearings on alleged violations of the statutes/rules and makes a written recommendation to the CIB board. No order is final until, and unless, the CIB board issues a final order. The hearings are conducted pursuant to the Administrative Procedures Act, the Open Meeting Act, and CIB statutory and rule requirements.
