R.A.C (Report-A-Cowboy) App

Closing the gap with targeted operations

The clampdown on illegal work remains a top priority for the Board. The new R.A.C app with the help of those using it - is effectively dealing with unauthorised work quickly.

Tradespeople and consumers joining forces with the Board is proving a successful strategy. The R.A.C app is helping to close the gap on those trying to work illegally within the industry who are putting consumers at risk and taking work from legitimate tradespeople.

Help the Board's investigations team target its operations

The app allows you to submit photo and video evidence of illegal work sites, false advertising on vans and so on.  It has the ability to log GPS coordinates and it is a direct link to the Board's investigations unit.  Intelligence gathered from reports received through the R.A.C app helps target their operations at hot spot areas identified.
