We Need Your Help

The electrical program needs good referrals from contractors and electricians competing with firms who are operating out of compliance with Washington’s electrical laws and rules. If you have verifiable information of unfair competition, illegal activities, or illegal work in progress, contact the local inspection office or E-CORE team member nearest your area.

Provide the local inspection office or E-CORE team member with the information they need to conduct a successful investigation. Complete a witness statement or investigation report, and send it along with any digital photos you have to the local inspection office or E-CORE team member in your area. Links to these forms are available below:

Contact the E-CORE Team: Electrical Compliance, Outreach, Regulation, and Education

What is the purpose of this team?

The E-CORE team focuses on contractors' and electricians' concerns with the underground economy. Legitimate contractors and electricians ask us to find unlicensed electrical contractors, uncertified electricians, and those who fail to get electrical permits. E-CORE will also make referrals to other department programs for violations of the general contracting, industrial insurance, and jobsite safety laws.
