We have established the Queensland Building and Construction Product Committee to protect home owners and industry members from non-compliant and non-conforming products through raising industry awareness.
The Product Committee will receive reports of potentially non-conforming products and decide to:
If you feel a decision we've made is incorrect, you can apply to have it reviewed independently through our Internal Review Unit, or through the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT).
What can be internally reviewed
If you are dissatisfied with a decision we've made, you can apply to our Internal Review Unit for an independent review of the decision.
A licensee must ensure an MFR report is prepared by a qualified accountant.
A qualified accountant is someone who:
- meets the requirements of a qualified accountant outlined in the ASIC Corporations (Qualified Accountant) Instrument 2016/786, or
- is a Registered Company Auditor, or
- holds a current public practising certificate from the Association of Taxation and Management Accountants or National Tax and Accountants Association.
The qualified accountant must also be independent of the licensee.
Licensees will be required to report their financial information or continued compliance with the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (Minimum Financial Requirements) Regulation 2018 at certain times including:
A site supervisor licence allows an employee or officer of a licensed contractor to supervise building work under the contractor’s licence. A site supervisor’s licence may be issued for any class of licence.
How to apply
If you are applying for a Mechanical Services Site Supervisor licence, please refer to the mechanical services pages for the application form and documentation requirements.
Our role in keeping building sites safe
In recent years, fatalities and serious injuries on building sites have heightened the need for the QBCC to be quickly notified of safety incidents on site.
Without swift notification we cannot undertake the necessary immediate enquiries, which in turn hampers our contribution to reducing unsafe practices. In November 2017, legislation was introduced requiring our licensees to notify us of any safety incidents.
We send your licence renewal notice one month before it’s due.
You can renew:
- online (by credit card only)
- by BPAY
- by phone – 139 333 (you will need your licence number)*
- by mail
- in person at any QBCC office.
* To pay by direct debit over the phone, complete a Debit Request Form (PDF) and return it to QBCC 24 hours before using the service.
Before you apply
If your company enters into a contract to do building work under a company name (e.g. signs a contract under a Pty Ltd), it must have a QBCC licence as it can't use the licence number of an employee or licensed director.
We are unable to issue a licence to a trust, but a company or a person acting as trustee for a trust could apply for a QBCC licence.
