The 1941 legislative assembly passed a state plumbing law, codified as North Dakota Century Code chapter 43-18. The chapter was intended to promote and protect the public health through the regulation of the business of plumbing by creating a state board of plumbing and empowering the board and the state department of health to adopt rules governing the practice of plumbing and establishing a code of minimum standards of plumbing work. The 1973 legislative assembly passed legislation, codified as North Dakota Century Code chapter 43-18.1, which regulates the installation of water-conditioning equipment. The 1987 legislative assembly passed legislation, codified as North Dakota Century Code chapter 43-18.2, which regulates the installation of sewer and water services.
The Legislative Council publishes the Administrative Code which is the codification of all rules of state administrative agencies, as that term is defined by North Dakota Century Code Section 28-32-02. The Administrative Code was initially published July 1, 1978. Title 62 refers to the North Dakota State Plumbing Board.
