The State of Ohio does not hold reciprocal agreements with other states for General, Residential and most Commercial Contractors. This is because contractors are licensed at the local-level in Ohio.
If a contractor from another state wants to conduct business in the State of Ohio, they must comply with the local laws and ordinances in the city or town in which they choose to work.
Ohio does, however, hold reciprocal agreements for Commercial Contractors engaged in the electrical trade. In this case, the State of Ohio works with:
- West Virginia
