Things you need to know about Supervision

These documents provide guidance for plumbers, gasfitters and drainlayers about responsibilities when supervising registered Tradesmen, Provisional Licence holders, Limited Certificate Trainees and Exemption Under Supervision holders.

See the quick reference guide below for an easy to understand overview

The above supervision information is a guideline only, as opposed to rules, and therefore are not binding. However, as best practice statements they will be used by the Board to assist it in determining when to take action against individuals for not exercising proper supervision.

If at any point during the licensing year you stop supervising someone, you must notify the Board of this fact in writing. Until the Board receives written notification, you remain responsible for any work carried out by people under your supervision according to the Board's database. Written notification can be by email or letter (PO Box 10655, The Terrace, Wellington 6143).
