Notifiable work

To reduce costs and improve regulation efficiency, the plumbing licensing, compliance and disciplinary functions transferred over to the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC).

For information on notifiable work, visit the QBCC website.

The Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy will still assess applications and approve occupational gas work licences.

The Department of Housing and Public Works will continue to reduce the red tape, delays and costs associated with this type of building work for the building industry and home owners.

About the myQBCC online portal

The myQBCC online portal is the new way to interact with QBCC - regardless of whether you're a contractor or a home owner.
You can enter the details online through myQBCC or if you prefer, you can manually record your jobs in the Form 4 book.  
 If you're new to myQBCC, we show you how you can log in to the system.  It's a simple process but we do provide a guide if you need it.

Information for local governments

 This means that you will now:
  • have access to a more reliable and stable online service
  • have an easier way to search submissions lodged in your area, including by site address or category of work performed
  • be able to mark Notifiable Work (Form 4/4A) for audit, record the audit outcome and add comments, and be able to view the audit history
  • have access to any attachments to Notifiable Work (Form 4/4A) submissions, including 'As Constructed' diagrams where the work involved underground drainage
  • be able to record enforcement actions
  • be able to produce a report.

What do you need to do?

You will need a new myQBCC account as your old PAS login and password are not recognised by the new system.
If you have not received a 'Welcome to myQBCC' email from us advising that we have created an account for you now that the new system is live, please email with the following details:
  • First name and surname of the user
  • Your local government individual email address i.e. cannot be a generic or group email, and it must end in ‘’ or the account cannot be created.
  • Your business telephone numbers e.g. landline and mobile
  • The name of the Local Government entity you work for.
If you have been registered for a myQBCC account for Local Government you can login to myQBCC and get started.
