The Building Commission released a consultation paper in February 2015 seeking public comment on a proposal to introduce a restricted permit scheme to enable trained non-plumbers to carry out certain types of basic plumbing repair work in remote Aboriginal communities.
The purpose of this session is to provide further information about the proposal and discuss the options presented in the consultation paper.
