Registration and Licensing of Building Trades

Recent amendments were made to the Building Act 1993 to:

  • Provide the registration of building trade contractors and sub-contractors; and
  • The licensing of building employees


A registration or a license will be required to perform certain building work which will be prescribed in building regulation (‘prescribed work’).


Priority areas of building work include:

  • Carpenters (and framers)
  • Plasterers
  • Footing and foundation workers
  • Bricklayers and
  • Water proofers
