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

What is the purpose of this team?

The E-CORE team focuses on contractors' concerns with the underground economy. Legitimate contractors 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.

We need your help

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