Your licence

As a Licensed Building Practictioner (LBP) you:

  • are listed on an online public register so consumers and potential employers can identify you as licensed
  • must act competently, and should recognise when other skills are required
  • are accountable to the Building Practitioners Board
  • relicense every year.


To remain competent, you need to

  • still be practising in an area related to your licence class
  • maintain current skills and knowledge – that is, stay up to date with materials and products, current regulations, and good trade practice.  


Every year, the Registrar makes contact with you about a month prior to your ID licence card expiring to ensure that you wish to remain licensed.
