The role of the QBCC is to safeguard the building and construction sector, its workers and end users. The QBCC is committed to meeting the needs of industry but also has a very distinct role in protecting Queenslanders and the industry from harm.
Protecting Queenslanders and industry
Protecting Queenslanders from physical or financial harm suffered as a result of unfair or unresolved building disputes and non-compliant pools.
Protecting Queenslanders against non-compliant, unsafe or unfit buildings which arise through failures of accountability.
Protecting Queenslanders against unsafe or nonconforming building products which pose a serious risk to public health and safety and building quality.
Protecting licensees and the broader industry against financial harm in their work environment.
How we detect non-compliance
We detect non-compliance in the following ways:
complaints of non-compliance reported by members of the community
collaborating with key industry stakeholders to understand industry trends
collaborating with other regulators, government and agencies to better regulate and protect against harm
proactively identifying risk to detect compliance breaches and risks to prevent harm.
