Plumbing & Natural Gas

To provide a more efficient and quicker review, the Plumbing and Food Service Plan Review section of the Arkansas Department of Health encourages plan submissions to be sent electronically via our online plan portal or by Mail or delivery service. 

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.

Please call 501-661-2642 for plumbing licensing application questions. Plumbing Plan Review forms and guidelines, as well as applications, can be located below.





Rules, guidelines, and information related to Arkansas Apprenticeship can be found on the Office of Skills Development website.
