On 19 June 2013, the Hon Michael Mischin MLC, Minister for Commerce, announced an independent review of Western Australia’s plumbing regulation, to be conducted by ACIL Allen Consulting (ACIL Allen).
The review examined the effectiveness of the current plumbing laws and made a number of recommendations for change aimed at putting in place a more modern and flexible regulatory framework for plumbing work and plumbing standards in Western Australia.
The Building Commission has started work on implementing the recommendations from the review, which includes the adoption of the Plumbing Code of Australia (PCA), including the alternative solutions provisions.
