From 10 November 2014, the Plumbing Industry Council will disband and the plumbing licensing, compliance and disciplinary functions will be moved over to the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC).This transfer aims to reduce costs and improve regulation efficiency for the plumbing and drainage industry.

For information about plumbing licensing, compliance and disciplinary functions, visit the QBCC webpage.

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

The changes are part of the Government's Ten Point Action Plan to overhaul building and construction industry regulation.

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.

The Plumbing Industry Council would like to take the opportunity to thank all licensees for their commitment to the plumbing industry by protecting the public health, safety and environment for Queenslanders.

For more information on the changes and how it will affect you as a plumber, please read the frequently asked questions for plumbing and drainage licensee's.
