LBP Registrar update

(Codewords 88) 29 January 2019

Welcome to our first edition of 2019. I hope that your summer months have been enjoyable so far. In the building world, we can expect another busy year ahead; things don’t seem to be slowing down.

Wayne Burroughs - Registrar 
As you may be aware, there is some change in the air for the Licensed Building Practitioner (LBP) scheme. I have stepped in as Registrar of LBPs as Paul Hobbs has been appointed to another building regulatory role as Manager of the Building System Assurance team. I wish Paul all the best and thank him for his contribution to the LBP scheme over the last several years. In addition, we consulted last year on fees and whether stonemasonry should be included in the scheme, and also released the stakeholder assessment report.

On the radar this year is policy and legislative change following the feedback we received from those pieces of work. MBIE hopes to open a consultation in the first quarter of the year, and we will be in touch when that happens so that you can have your say. Please keep an eye out for this – it’s important to make sure your voice is heard. Read more
