Service Trades Council (STC)

The Service Trades Council is an independent regulatory body representing Queensland service trades.  It was created to protect the public's health and safety as well as the environment. The Council provides an independent advisory function to the Minister and the Commissioner.


The STC was established through the Plumbing and Drainage Act 2002 (PDA) and held its first meeting on 4 August 2016. The Commissioner appointed the Assistant Commissioner Service Trades Unit on 15 August 2016.

The role is responsible for three main functions:

  • Assisting the STC
  • Leading QBCC’s Service Trades Division
  • Leading key policy initiatives for the QBCC, as designated by the Commissioner
