Find an LBP

You can search the public register of Licensed Building Practitioners (LBPs) to:

  • find an LBP
  • check that a person is licensed
  • view an LBP’s licence history
  • find out if an LBP has been disciplined in the last three years.

Under section 307 of the Building Act 2004, you can’t use the information in this register for any other purpose. If you do, you are breaching the Privacy Act 2020.

To find the right people for your building or renovation work you must engage an appropriately licensed LBP. Consider all the information when you choose an LBP.

The following information can be found on the public register:

  • Contact information
  • Location (such as the town, city or region)
  • The company or body corporate they work for
  • Qualifications
  • Licence class details
  • Suspension history – complaint disclosure and any disciplinary history from the past three years.
