The Granite State Septic System Certified Evaluator
Program has been developed by the Granite State Designers and Installers
Association. The purpose of this voluntary program is to establish a minimum level
of standard evaluation procedures by qualified septic system professionals with the goal
of producing consistent, objective evaluations in New Hampshire.
The latest from the NH Office of Professional Licensure and Certification about the licensing of septic evaluators in NH! The NH Office of Professional Licensure and Certification has recently set up the following website for the program. The administrative rules to run the program are currently under development.
Here in New Hampshire, many unqualified persons are currently conducting septic system
evaluations and may be subjecting property owners and prospective property owners to
costly/unnecessary septic system repairs or replacements and incorrect diagnosis.
This is particularly commonplace during inspections of real estate for possible ownership
transfers. There are no universally accepted industry standards or procedures for
septic system inspections and no rating/classifying conditions of septic systems.
The Granite State Designers and Installers Association, a statewide professional
association established in 1986 comprised of septic system designers, installers and
maintenance personnel, has created this Certified Septic System Evaluation Program.
This program ensures that professionals who obtain this designation have a level of
knowledge and experience to maintain the high standards of septic evaluation, enabling the
program to ensure the goal of producing consistent and objective evaluations here in New
