Any firm may be registered hereunder as a gas fitter in the name of the firm, provided that the firm shall have a gas fitter who is duly registered as provided in this chapter. The gas fitter in the firm must be a bona fide officer of the firm or an employee who is regularly employed by the firm and is actually engaged in the planning, superintending, and practical installation of gas piping and appliances. The gas fitter registered by the firm shall be in actual charge of and responsible for the installation, removal, or repair of any gas piping or appliance work done by the firm. Before the firm shall be registered as a gas fitter there shall be filed with the Chairperson of the Examining Board a certificate from the Examining Board of Gas Mechanics and Fitters showing the fitness and competency of the individual or individuals who are qualified as gas fitters and who shall be in charge of the firm’s gas piping and gas appliance installations. One individual must qualify as a gas fitter to enable the firm to hold a gas fitter’s license and, in case the individual or individuals withdraw from or cease to be connected with the firm, the Examining Board shall forthwith revoke the registration of the firm. A registered firm may employ nonregistered personnel in its natural gas activities, without obtaining registration and license for each employee; provided, however, that the work of the non-registered employees is at all times under the jurisdiction, authority, and control of the registered officer or member thereof. Any firm not maintaining an established place of business within the municipality shall be required to obtain registration and licensing of all employees who may be engaged in the inspection, cleaning, repair, alteration, sale, or installation of natural gas piping systems and appliances.
