Event description

Description

You’re invited to attend a Queensland plumbing law reforms information session. These reforms deliver on commitments made in the Queensland Building Plan (QBP) to make our construction industry safer, fairer and more sustainable.

This session will cover:

  • the introduction of a new Act, a new regulation and a revised Queensland Plumbing and Wastewater Code
  • an update of the new Plumbing Code of Australia 2019
  • an update of the QBP. For more information visit Queensland Building Plan.

The new plumbing laws include a number of new regulatory reduction and compliance initiatives, including:

  • a new permit application system allowing for work to commence up to 18 days earlier for the majority of new homes
  • a new appeal rights at the inspection stage of plumbing work allowing licensees to appeal an action notice earlier than currently permitted
  • an extension of time for an existing permit allowing licensees to amend rather than start a new application as is current practice; and
  • a stronger penalty framework providing a greater deterrent for those who breach the plumbing laws, particularly for those individuals who are not appropriately licensed or for licensees who direct or supervise unlicensed work.

This event is open to Queensland plumbing and drainage licensees and contractors, local government plumbing inspectors, builders, developers, water service providers and homeowners. These sessions will run for 1 hour with 30 minutes for questions.
