These are the most significant reforms since the current Building Act was introduced in 2004.
The proposed changes affect people, products and practices in the building sector and MBIE asked industry and the public to consider the proposals and give feedback on the following topics:
- occupational regulation
- risk and liability
- the Building Levy
- offences, penalties and public notification
Submissions closed on 16 June. In our submission we focused on two aspects of the proposal, occupational regulation and the Building Levy.
This is great news for the construction industry, we are currently working with the Tertiary Education Commission to confirm which BCITO programmes will be eligible for free fees.
PRESS RELEASE 14 MAY 2020 - Speaking today after the announcement of the Budget and the $1.6 billion Trades and Apprenticeships Training Package, Warwick Quinn, BCITO Chief Executive congratulated the Government.
