A VICTORY FOR COMMON SENSE: QBSA LICENSING

CCF QLD is pleased to announce a victory for common sense in relation to Queensland Building Services Authority licensing requirements.

There have been recent changes to the Queensland Building Services Act 1991 (Qld) and Queensland Building Services Authority Regulation 2003 (Qld) that may provide relief to civil contractors that do not have a QBSA licence.

In short there are new exemptions regarding the requirement to have a licence when carrying out building work and new types of work that are now not considered building work.

Robert Row, Chief Executive Officer of CCF QLD said: “We have worked tirelessly to advocate for members on these issues and we are pleased they appear to be finally resolved.

“These changes have been a long-time coming and we have welcomed the government’s action.

“This is a victory for common sense and I believe demonstrates this Government’s commitment to reducing red tape and advancing the four pillar economy,” he said.
