Change in Qualifying Party
The application for Change in Qualifying Party is to be used for changing the qualifying party on a license. The qualifying party must be an owner, officer, or responsible managing employee. MSBOC requires proof of employment of each qualifying party via a check stub or W2. The Qualifying Party must meet all testing or reciprocal requirements of MSBOC.
Replacement of the qualifier must be made within 90 days of disassociation to avoid a suspension or revocation of the license. Notification can be made by the owner, partner or officer, or the qualifier who is leaving. Notification may be by letter or by fax. Replacement of the qualifier may be made by submitting the Application for Replacing the Qualifying Individual.
Failure to replace the disassociated Qualifier within 90 days from the date of his or her disassociation will result in a hearing notice requesting the contractor appear before the Board at the next scheduled meeting to show cause why their Certificate of Responsibility should not be suspended or revoked. If the license has more than one classification, and the qualifier for the other class or classes remains on the license, the licensee may continue to operate in the remaining class or classes. The class qualified by the person who disassociated will be removed the day of the hearing unless replacement is made within the required time.
