11 September 2018

This is a warning issued by the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC) Commissioner to the public under section 20J(1)(i) of the Queensland Building and Construction Commission Act 1991.

On 27 July 2018, the QBCC issued a public warning urging consumers, contractors and suppliers to be cautious in any dealings with Belal Dassouki; Plumbing Detectives Pty Ltd in Queensland; or any entity associated with Belal Dassouki or Plumbing Detectives Pty Ltd.

The Commission has since become aware that Mahmoud Sayadi, a known business associate of Belal Dassouki, now former director of Plumbing Detective Pty Ltd (NSW), is offering to carry out plumbing work throughout the Brisbane region.

Various websites are linked to Mahmoud Sayadi and Clean & Clear Purifications Specialists Pty Ltd. A Fair Trading New South Wales licence search of Belal Dassouki reveals Belal Dassouki had an associated licence with Clean & Clear Purifications Specialists Pty Ltd up to 3 August 2018.
