Accreditation of Practitioners

Under the Building Act 2000 any practitioner that wishes to undertake building work and the value of such work exceeds $5000.00 including labour and material, are required to be accredited by the Director of Building Control.

Accreditation is for the following practitioners:

  • Designers (architects, building designers
  • Engineers, civil designers and building services designers)
  • Building surveyors who are responsible for assessment and inspection of buildings
  • Builders who carry out, or manage the building work.

Accreditation under the Building Act 2000 is not occupational licensing and does not provide for the accreditation of:

  • Tradespeople
  • Subcontractors
  • Employees
  • Apprentices
  • or Others working for building practitioners.

It is the person who has the contract with the owner who needs to be accredited.
