Regulation of Home Inspectors

Proposed Changes in Regulations

The Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development proposes to adopt regulation changes in Title 12, Chapter 02 of the Alaska Administrative Code, dealing with occupational licensing fees related to construction contractors and home inspectors.

The public may comment on the proposed regulation changes, including the potential costs to private persons of complying with the proposed changes, by submitting written comments by mail, fax, or e-mail to the division's Regulations Specialist. Public comment due no later than April 1, 2014, at 4:30 p.m.

The Division of Corporation and Professional Licensing staffs the home inspector program. The Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development adopts regulations to carry out laws governing home inspectors in Alaska. It makes final licensing decisions and takes disciplinary actions against people who violate licensing laws.

Home Inspectors must also obtain an Alaska Business License.

Employee Identification Numbers (EIN) may be obtained from the U.S. Department of Treasury, Internal Revenue Service. The form for obtaining an EIN number is form number SS-4 and can be downloaded from the IRS publications website.
