Tradies are required to hold current licenses for good reason – they have been appropriately trained and are aware of any changes to Codes and Standards. Plumbers, drainers, gasfitters & electricians are all deemed specialist tradespeople. Therefore, home renovators should never attempt to take on any plumbing, draining, gas fitting or electrical wiring work themselves. It is illegal to carry out this type of work without holding the appropriate contractor licence due to the high risk of harm to themselves and others. So always ensure that you use a licensed plumber for this high risk specialist work no matter how small the job may seem.
In Victoria, Plumbers are registered or licensed with the Victorian Building Authority (VBA). The VBA is the industry regulator and oversees a number of services including:
- undertaking inspections, investigations and audits to enforce compliance with relevant legislation
- working with other agencies and regulators to ensure building and plumbing practitioners are compliant and that consumers are protected
- publishing data for building and plumbing practitioners
- responding to general enquiries from the public about the building and plumbing industries
- registering, licensing and disciplining plumbers in Victoria
How to check if your tradie is qualified:
