Request copies of your documents (AA) | Queensland Building and Construction Commission

QBCC licence and other fees are set by regulation and increase according to the Government Indexation Rate. For 2024-2025, the Government Indexation Rate is zero percent. Therefore there was no fee increase on 1 July 2024. 


Where possible, we will release your own personal information through the streamlined Administrative Access (AA) process.

When you apply for a licence, or send in a complaint form, we create a file that contains all your paperwork. It includes any additional information you give to us, as well as copies of any letters or reports that we send you.

If you want information from your file, that you have sent us or we have sent you, you can apply to us through AA. It is an easier and quicker process than the formal Right to Information (RTI) or Information Privacy (IP) application process.

What is not available under AA?

Information you can't access under AA includes:

  • information that cannot be legally released or that’s subject to legal professional privilege
  • information relating to a current case (not closed), including a dispute, complaint, investigation, prosecution or other law enforcement activity
  • large requests for information
  • personal information considered to be highly sensitive or confidential
  • generally, any information that is not your own personal information.

 To request access to information that is unavailable under AA, you can apply under:

  • Information Privacy (IP)—to apply for your personal information only
  • Right to Information (RTI)—to apply for the information of other people or companies, or a combination of your personal information and the information of other people or companies.


AA requests are free with the exception of :
