What do I need to know about accreditation?

Building work incorporates the design, construction, assessment of work and demolition.

To ensure buildings are properly constructed, the Building Act 2016 has introduced a system for mandatory accreditation for Building Practitioner's in Tasmania.  Accreditation is required for the following practitioners:

  • Designers - responsible for the design of buildings
  • Building Surveyors and Assistant Building Surveyors - responsible for the assessment of design and building work
  • Builders - responsible for the construction (or demolition) of buildings

Building practitioners must be accredited in the appropriate Category and Class for the work that they are undertaking and may be accredited in more than one Category.
