About the Building Commission

Western Australia’s Building Commission oversees the regulation of building, painting, building surveying and plumbing services. With all these regulatory functions focused within a single agency, our industry and consumers benefit from a more consistent and efficient service.

The Building Services Board has been established within the Commission to register builders, painters and building surveyors, and the Plumbers Licensing Board licenses plumbers. The Commission also provides advice to the Minister of Commerce regarding the administration of the Architects Act 2004.
