About the Building Commission

Office closure

Our offices will close from Monday 24 December 2018 and will reopen on Thursday 3 January 2019. For urgent assistance during that period you can contact us.

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 for Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety regarding the administration of the Architects Act 2004.
