Iowa Plumbing & Mechanical Systems Board

2020 Renewal Extended two Additional Months

On March 29, 2021 the Plumbing and Mechanical Systems Board (PMSB) convened and voted to extend the 2020 renewal period for an additional two months.  This extension is intended to help eliminate confusion within the industry as to when PMSB licenses will ultimately expire.  One of the provisions of Governor Reynolds’ Proclamation of Disaster Emergency prevents licenses issued by the PMSB from expiring.  It is anticipated that this will be the final extension given by the PMSB for the 2020 renewal.   However, the PMSB will continue to monitor the situation and make adjustments if necessary.

  • Licensees will now have until June 1, 2021 to renew their license(s) without penalty for the 2020 renewal.  For plumbing and mechanical contractors, this also includes the associated contractor registration with the Iowa Division of Labor.
  • No new license documents will be issued (wall certificates, registrations and wallet cards).   All licenses will still have an expiration date listed as June 30, 2020.  All licenses with an expiration date of June 30, 2020 shall still be valid for practice until July 1, 2021.
  • Late fees for an untimely renewal begin to incur on June 2, 2021.   A $60 late fee shall apply from June 2 – June 30. 
  • On July 1, 2021 a license is no longer valid for practice.    On July 1, 2021 licensees must reinstate a license that expired on June 30, 2020.
