Regulatory Change Simplifies Contractor Advertising

Licensed contractors who advertise in Arizona will now have an easier go of things under a regulatory change that went into effect at the end of September.

Previously, licensed contractors were required to display their Arizona Registrar of Contractors license number for all “broadcast, published, internet or billboard advertising, letterheads and other documents used by the licensee to correspond with the licensee’s customers or potential customers.”

This presented difficulties for ads other than print media.

In March 2021, Governor Doug Ducey signed HB 2545 into law, creating an exception to the requirement.

Now, licensed contractors do not have to display or announce their license number online, broadcast or billboard ads if they instead provide a web link where the contractor’s name and license number is “prominently” displayed. (Source)
