Take the stress out of managing contractors

We know staying on top of contractor compliance can be frustrating and time consuming. That’s why we developed HIA Tradepass.

It has been built to accommodate all types of contractors including:

  • trades
  • suppliers
  • manufacturers
  • professional services and even builders.

How does Tradepass work?

Tradepass can help you manage your contractors' documents in three easy steps:

  1. Provide our team with your contractor list (details to include: name, number, ABN) – we have a template for this
  2. We contact your contractors to upload their documents and details
  3. Our team will review, verify and provide advice when required to your contractors.
That’s it! All updates will be visible on your HIA Builder Dashboard. No hardcopy paperwork, no fuss.

The system and the Tradepass team can help collect and verify the following documents and information:

  • ABN and GST registration
  • required trade licences/registrations
  • high risk work licences 
  • construction induction cards
  • Insurance Certificates of Currency such as:
    • public liability
    • workers compensation
    • professional indemnity
    • personal accident and sickness/income protection
  • a summary of the business’ safety practices
  • plus other regulatory requirements.

Annual subscription fees

There are annual subscription fees for both access to the system and supporting verification services.
