Profession​al indemnity insurance for building industry professionals

The professional indemnity (PI) insurance market for building industry professionals has changed significantly in 2019. 

This has affected the availability and affordability of compliant PI insurance across Australia. 

The Queensland Government engaged Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC) to conduct an in-depth and evidence-based analysis of the PI insurance market to understand the factors that are influencing the market both in Queensland and nationally. 

PwC produced the report: Strengthening the professional indemnity insurance environment for building industry professionals in Queensland: Interim report (PDF, 3.5MB).

This report analyses the:

  • factors influencing the PI insurance market
  • impacts that the current PI insurance market has on PI insurance, and the building and construction industry.

​The Queensland Government will continue to work with industry and other jurisdictions, including the Australian Government, to develop a national response.
