If you are after some information about the building process, you can download one of our comprehensive guides or if you interested in a particular subject, you may find what you are looking for in the list of fact sheets.
We regulate the Queensland building and construction industry. We:
- licence contractors and certifiers
- provide contractor information
- raise consumer awareness of the building process
- provide free early dispute resolution services
- resolve payment disputes
- undertake compliance and enforcement, and
- provide home warranty insurance.
To provide peace of mind for those who contract with or work in the building and construction industry.
We make decisions about:
If an individual unit owner of a multiple dwelling or duplex contracts with a contractor to perform insurable work within their unit, and the value of the work is over $3,300, then the insurance premium is based on the value of that work.
If the Body Corporate contracts with a contractor to perform insurable work on the common property of a multiple dwelling or duplex “notional pricing” may apply. Notional pricing may also apply where the owner of multiple units engages a contractor to perform insurable work in each of those units under one contract.
The Commissioner of the QBCC may make policies to give guidance about compliance with the Queensland Building and Construction Commission Act 1991 (the Act). The Commissioner’s policies will be published on this page as they are made.
