License number change: As of Oct. 3, 2011, electrical contractors need to use their new electrical contractor license number. Essentially, all license numbers will remain the same except that the CA prefix will change to the EA prefix, and one additional leading zero will be added either EA or TS followed by six numbers (e.g. EA001234 or TS001234). View a chart showing all of the license changes (PDF).
