Pursuant to the Colorado Revised Statues 12-58-114.5, The Town of Breckenridge Building Division has established the following procedures for conduction contemporaneous review of plumbing licenses. These procedures apply to the inspection of all plumbing work required to be installed by State Licensed Plumbers. Inspections of all plumbing work will only be conducted when a State Licensed plumbing contractor is provided on a approved plumbing permit. The Town of Breckenridge will verify State License provided by accessing the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) website. Breckenridge plumbing inspectors will request, at their discretion any of the following.

  • Verification of plumbing licenses for the plumbers working on the job site for compliance with CRS-12-58-105
  • Verification of apprentices working on the job site for compliance with CRS-12-58-117
  • That the plumbing contractor is the same as that listed on the issued permit.
  • If the inspector is unable to verify the identity or verification of any of the items listed above, the inspector may issue a 'stop work'  order or  fail the requested inspection, at their, at their discretion, until verification can be provided.
  • Based upon scope and extent of violations, The Town of Breckenridge Building Division staff, may further issue a written warning to non-compliant plumbing installers, and at The Town's discretion, proceed with submitting a formal complaint of violations to the State Plumbing Board (SPB) shall be retained in the Chief Building Official's Office.
