New Hampshire septic licensing

(Peter C. Russell, NH licence #57) #1

Fellow NH inspectors. If you are subbing out your septic inspections please be aware that septic inspection licensing went into effect on January 1 2017.

The only inspectors who are automatically licensed are GSDI (Granite State Designers and Installers) certified septic evaluators.

There is a grandfathering clause that allows a pathway for inspectors who have been in business for 5 years, have completed at least 25 inspection, however, they are not automatically granted a license. Their information/documentation must be presented to the board for approval.

Because of the change in governors in NH the board has just been formed and I’m not sure if they’ve had their first meeting.

I will keep everyone informed as I know more but in the mean time make sure your septic inspector is certified.
