Keeping it legal in New Zealand

We regularly check tradespeople

Do you already have an overseas plumbing, gasfitting or drainlaying qualification? Make sure you hold the correct qualification for New Zealand.



You are breaking the law if you carry out restricted plumbing, gasfitting or drainlaying work without the NZ Practising Licence.  We regularly check tradespeople and hotspot areas nationwide that come to our attention.
