The Professional Building Contractor Licensing Review Board (PBCLRB) is a voluntary program for contractors who want to be identified as being the top of their field.  Licensing shows a commitment to professionalism through continuing education on code updates and issues, and demonstrating a high level of qualifications and ethical standards

The board includes four contractors, an architect/engineer member, a member of the public and two building officials.  Members represent all areas of the state and serve four years.

Board Responsibilities

The board shall consist of eleven members to be appointed by the Board of Directors.  Prior to the initial appointment or subsequent expiration of any term of a PBCLRB member, any person, professional society, or association interested in the construction industries may submit to the Board of Directors a list of names of persons of recognized ability who have the qualifications prescribed for PBCLRB members. The Board of Directors shall give consideration to the list of names submitted and shall make an appointment to fill any vacancies.

The PBCLRB shall, to the extent qualified individuals are willing to serve, consist of the following members:

  • Two members shall be a licensed contractor or an employee of such contractor.
  • Two members shall be a licensed building contractor or an employee of such contractor.
  • Two members shall be a licensed residential contractor or an employee of such contractor.
  • One member shall be a licensed Class D contractor or an employee of such contractor.
  • Two members shall be certified building code officials within Idaho.
  • One member shall be licensed by the state of Idaho as an architect or Engineer.
  • One member shall be from the general public of the state of Idaho.

Every member, except the member from the general public, shall, at the time of the appointment, be active in the appointee’s profession or trade and have had at least five (5) years experience in such appointee’s profession or trade.

The term of office for PBCLRB members shall be four years.  Vacancies occurring before the expiration of a term shall be filled in the manner of the original appointment for the remainder of the unexpired term.  The individual members of the PBCLRB shall serve without compensation.

Time Commitments

Board members should anticipate the following time commitments:

  1. Board Meetings – Board meetings are monthly conference calls that last approximately two hours.  Once a quarter the Board attempts to meet face to face and this commitment would be one day (including travel).
  2. Training – Board members are encouraged to attend training seminars hosted by PBCLRB in their respective regions. 
  3. Committees – Board members may be assigned to serve on committees or act as committee chairs.  Time commitment is up to the committee but generally will require an additional hour per month.

What's New...

Building industry groups have been meeting for several months in Boise to work out code adoption issues for 2013. On the table under discussion are the 2012 IBC, IRC, IECC and existing Building codes. To date, it appears that their recommendation is to adopt the 2012 IBC and Existing Building Code, and to look at possible amendments to the IRC and IECC to make them less onerous. Please see the attachments for a progress report and analysis.
