Information for applicants
Each application form lists the information you need to provide for that category. All applicants must pay the required fee and provide a photograph which will appear on the registration/licence card.
In addition, you will require some or all of the following:
- copies of your qualifications or (if currently licensed interstate) a copy of your interstate licence
- evidence that you have access to the current (2015) version of Australian Standard ASNZS:3500*
- a list of the work you have done over the past three years
- if you are not self-employed, a letter of endorsement from your current or most recent employer (sample provided)
- character references.
*Note: The current version of ASNZS:3500 is 2015 edition.
The Code can be purchased from the Master Builders Association, cnr Winnellie Road and Hickman Street, telephone (08) 8922 9666. The complete printed set costs approximately $1,300. There are various other options available online via the SAI Global InfoStore at a lower cost.
If you have any questions about the requirements, please email the Registrar before submitting your application.
Information for people intending to move from one Australian state to another
If you are currently registered/licensed elsewhere in Australia, you can apply for an NT licence/registration under Mutual Recognition and you will be issued with the NT equivalent of your licence. For further information, read the attached information sheet. To apply use the Mutual Recognition application form provided below.
If you have a current NT registration/licence card you can apply for the equivalent in other states. However, this will be issued only in the categories of Plumbing and Draining. For further information, read the attached information sheet.
To check the equivalent of your licence visit the COAG web page.
Information for people Intending to travel between Australia and New Zealand
The Mutual Recognition principle applies between Australia and New Zealand in the same way that it applies for people moving from Australian state to another. If you are moving from New Zealand to the NT, complete the Mutual Recognition application form provided below. If you are moving from the NT to New Zealand, visit the NZ Plumbers Gasfitters and Drainlayers Board website for further information.
On renewal you must provide evidence that you have access to the current (2015) version of Australian Standard ASNZS:3500.
