Rules of the Board

Carry the same authority as regulations and must be adhered to.

The Licensed Building Practitioners Rules 2007 (the Rules) are central to the LBP scheme.

To become licensed, or continue to be licensed, building practitioners must comply with the Rules.

The Rules set out the performance indicators and competencies for each licence class and area of practice and should be read in conjunction with the Building (Designation of Building Work Licensing Classes) Order 2010 the Building Order 2010(external link). These measures are used to decide whether to license practitioners.

The Board uses the Rules and Building Order 2010 as a measure in complaint investigations and appeal hearings.

The Rules also detail the obligations for continued licensing (for example, LBPs must reply to annual contact from the Registrar, and pay the prescribed fees).
