Plumbing & Natural Gas

The Department of Health provides consultation to local public health officials, architects, engineers, and other construction related professions regarding sanitary plumbing and natural gas systems. We supervise the inspection program for newly constructed public and private facilities throughout the state for compliance with Plumbing and Fuel Gas Codes, and provide testing and certification of various plumbing related licenses, such as Master/Journeyman, city inspectors and gas fitters. The department is responsible for publishing codes, rules and regulations for licensing, and conducts plumber and gas related training programs.

Applications for plumber's license are color coded and not available online. Please call 501-661-2642 for a plumbing licensing application. However, Plumbing Plan Review forms and guidelines, as well as applications for Assembly Repair and Assembly Testers can be located below.

The Arkansas Department of Health’s State Committee of Plumbing Examiners has no reciprocal licensing agreements with other state licensing Boards for Plumbing or Natural Gas at this time.
