The Building Commission is responsible for auditing regulated occupations including registered building contractors, licensed plumbing contractors, registered painters, registered building surveyors and non-registered building service providers i.e owner-builders. This measure reflects the impact of the regulatory activity undertaken to improve safety standards for building and plumbing.
This measure is calculated as a percentage of total elements found to be compliant out of the total number of elements inspected.
In 2017–18, a total of 78 per cent of registered building service providers were found to be compliant with regulatory requirements, which is one per cent higher than the 2016–17 result of 77 per cent and seven per cent lower than the target. The target of 85 per cent was set as an aspirational target to achieve a higher level of compliance within the building service provider industries.
