Licensing commercial and home building work

Reforming building laws in NSW

The NSW Government is working to increase confidence in our building and construction industry.

We are looking at how we can better protect consumers and support workers through our Reforming building laws in NSW consultation.

Have your say on licensing commercial and home building work

As part of the overall consultation, we are looking at simplifying the licensing system, improving the supervision of work and the quality of owner-builder work. This includes licensing certain commercial trade work for the first time.

This topic is most relevant to owner-builders, builders, specialist tradespeople, engineers, building designers, fire safety practitioners, architects and certifiers.

Whether you work in building and construction or are a member of the public, if you have an opinion on the building industry in NSW, we want to hear from you.

Tell us what you think

To have your say on licensing commercial and home building work, complete the survey below.

Alternatively, to have your say on more than one topic area, we recommend completing the all-in-one survey.

The all-in-one survey allows you to easily skip through all topics to the ones that interest you.

Written submissions

You can also make a written submission. This option allows you to give detailed feedback or respond directly to the questions in the regulatory impact statements.

For more information, please refer to the Related documents.

The consultation is open until Friday 25 November 2022.

Thank you for your feedback
