The first board for examining and licensing
plumbers in Maryland was established in 1886
(Chapter 439, Acts of 1886). Its jurisdiction was
limited to Baltimore City. The State Board of Com-
missioners of Practical Plumbing was created with
statewide jurisdiction in 1910 (Chapter 436, Acts
of 1910). In 1988, it was renamed the State Board
of Plumbing (Chapter 647, Acts of 1988).
The Board examines and certifies journeymen
and master plumbers. It regulates the plumbing
trade. Periodically, the Board also publishes the
State Plumbing Code.
The Board is comprised of nine members. They
are appointed to three-year terms by the Governor
with the advice of the Secretary of Licensing and
Regulation and Senate advice and consent. Mem-
bers include seven practical and skilled plumbers
from various regions of the State and two public
members. Authorization for the Board continues
until July 1,2003 (Code Business Occupations and
Professions Article, secs. 12-101 through 12-702).

The State Board of Public Accountancy origi-
nated in 1900 as the Board of Examiners of Public
Accountants (Chapter 719, Acts of 1900). In 1961,
the Board was renamed the Maryland State Board
of Public Accountancy (Chapter 819, Acts of
1961). It became the State Board of Public Ac-
countancy in 1989 (Chapter 3, Acts of 1989).

cates; and enrolls certified public accountants, cor-
porations, and partnerships engaging in certified
public accounting services.
Examinations are held each May and November.
The Board issues certificates to those who pass the
examinations or whose applications for reciprocal cer-
tificates are approved. For specified causes, the Board
may revoke or suspend any such certificate, registra-
tion, or enrollment after written notice to the holder
and reasonable opportunity for a hearing. In 1970,
the General Assembly established minimum educa-
tional requirements for applicants and gave the Board
jurisdiction over professional ethics.
Consisting of seven members, the Board is ap-
pointed to three-year terms by the Governor with the
advice of the Secretary of Licensing and Regulation.
Three members must be currently enrolled certified
public accountants. One member must be a full-time

STATE REAL ESTATE COMMISSION
Robert E. Mitchell, Chairperson, 1994
Elizabeth A. Beggs, Executive Director

501 St. Paul Place
Baltimore, MD 21202 (410) 333-6230

The Real Estate Commission of Maryland was
constituted in 1939 to license all real estate brokers
and salespersons doing business in Maryland
(Chapter 351, Acts of 1939). In the major revision
of the law regulating real estate brokers in 1988, the
Commission was renamed the State Real Estate
Commission (Chapter 563, Acts of 1988). The
Commission adopts regulations for licensing real
estate brokers and salespersons, formulates a code
of ethics for the business of real estate, and sets
standards for hearings conducted by itself or the
Real Estate Hearing Board. Each applicant for a
real estate salesperson's or broker's license must
complete courses relating to the principles of real
estate in order to qualify for examination.
The Commission may revoke, refuse, or suspend
a license and reprimand or fine a person up to
$2,000 per violation for unethical conduct or vio-
lating the real estate laws. Since 1971, the Commis-
sion has administered the Real Estate Guaranty
Fund of Maryland (Chapter 648, Acts of 1971).
The Fund, in essence, bonds all licensees.
The Commission is composed of nine members
appointed to four-year terms by the Governor with
the advice of the Secretary of Licensing and Regu-
lation and Senate advice and consent. Five members
are licensed professionals including real estate bro-
