Building site compliance checks underway

Date: 19 June 2018

Consumer and Business Services has ramped up its visits to building sites to check compliance with licensing and other legal requirements. 

Commercial, industrial and residential projects in the CBD and eastern suburbs are the first to come under the watchful eye of the licensing regulator, with more than 100 licence checks having already occurred.

Because this activity is ensuring ‘head contractor’ companies, subcontractors and on-site workers are appropriately licensed or registered, including builders, plumbers, gas fitters and electricians it is likely to have minimal impact on the Association of Building Consultants, but is useful for members to be aware.
