About the Board

The Board consists of ten ministerially-appointed members representing both the trade and the public. The Chief Executive/Registrar is employed by the Board and supported by teams responsible for the day to day running of the Board's administration. 

The Board is responsible for administering the registration and licensing systems of plumbers, gasfitters and drainlayers and in doing so, is responsible for setting the minimum standards for registration and ensuring those persons carrying out restricted work are competent to do so.

Broadly speaking, the powers and functions of the Board can be categorised into registration, licensing, competence, discipline and prosecution. The Board receives complaints and, as a result, may investigate and discipline registered persons (including provisional licence holders) or instigate a prosecution in the District Court against those working illegally in the industry.
