Changes to the building services legislation

From 1 February 2023, changes to the Building Services (Registration) Act 2011 as made by the Building and Construction Industry (Security of Payment) Act 2021 will come into effect. This will involve new powers of the Building Services Board (the Board) to manage the commercial conduct and behaviour of building service providers.

The Board will have the powers to take action against builders and other providers who fail to pay debts to subcontractors and to remove those with a history of financial failure.

Building and Energy has prepared the guide below to help you understand the upcoming changes. This guide should be read in conjunction with the other information about the Act available elsewhere on our website.
