The Licensed Building Practitioner (LBP) scheme
The LBP scheme requires building practitioners to be licensed to carry out or supervise work that is critical to the integrity of the building. This kind of ‘restricted building work’ concerns homes, and small- to medium-sized buildings. It applies to:
- active fire safety systems
- brick & block laying
An exemption is available for owner-builders.
