Police history check required for plumbers

March 31, 2019

Building and Energy have advised that the Plumbers Licencing Board now requires plumbers to provide a current National Police History Check at every licence renewal, which is once every three years.

The changes have been implemented following an independent review of Western Australia’s plumbing legislation, where the Plumbers Licensing Board had been granted extended powers when assessing an applicants fitness to hold a plumber's licence.

An assessment will be made against the Plumbers Licencing Board’s Criminal Record Assessment Policy.
