The State Electrical Board licenses, registers, and regulates electricians, apprentices, and electrical contractors. The Board does not regulate communication systems, elevators or passenger conveyors, bridge or highway projects, or data processing systems. The Board's mission is to protect the health and safety of the people of Colorado by enforcing the state electrical statutes. The Board conducts regular inspections of the installations it regulates, and reviews special requests for exceptions to the code.

The Board is made up of nine professional and public members appointed by the governor.
