Practice notes

Are an important statement by a Regulator that set out expectations for licensed people, in our case Licensed Building Practitioners (LBPs).

They are issued by many different regimes, from the Plumbers, Drainlayers and Gasfitters Board to the Institute of Professional Engineers of New Zealand.

Practice notes generally cover important areas where there is possible confusion in a particular area. They set out clear expectations for acceptable conduct and behaviour and establish clear standards for those in the industry to follow. This type of guidance is produced to assist LBPs to keep on the right side of the rules and ultimately achieve consistently high-quality outcomes for building work.
