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.
An LBP must notify the Register within 10 working days of any change to any of the information he or she has provided to the Registrar that is contained in the public register.
An LBP may suspend or cancel his or her licence(s) voluntarily.
You can apply for more than one licence in any of the seven licence classes.
The Licensed Building Practitioners (LBP) logo is the key element of the Licensed Building Practitioners scheme.
A replacement licensed building practitioner idenitification card can be requested.
If you are a licensed building practitioner (LBP) and someone complains about your conduct or work you will be notified of the complaint and given an opportunity to respond.
