The Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS) has now formally merged the operations of the former Building Commission and EnergySafety to form the new Building and Energy Division.
Ken Bowron will lead the Building and Energy team. He holds the statutory positions of the Building Commissioner and the Director of Energy Safety.
Building and Energy oversees the regulation of building, painting, building surveying and plumbing services and is responsible for the technical safety regulation of all the electrical and most of the gas industries in Western Australia. This amalgamation will allow for a co-ordinated and efficient approach to the regulation of these industries in Western Australia.
Your interactions with the Department will not change. All registration and licensing services, as well as compliance, disciplinary and complaint resolution processes will continue unchanged. For the short term, contact details, including the individual webpages, remain unchanged.
If you have any enquiries regarding the new structure or services provided by DMIRS you are encouraged to contact us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
