Complain about a building practitioner with other qualifications
Last updated: 20 April 2016
Some building practitioners are able to do or supervise some restricted building work (RBW) because of their professional qualification.
They do not appear on the LBP register, but you can complain to the Building Practitioners Board about these practitioners. However your complaint may be referred to the relevant professional body. This will be dependent on the type of work carried out.
You will need to contact other industry bodies for confirmation of membership and information about their complaint process.
If your building practitioner is an:
- architect, contact New Zealand Registered Architects Board
- engineer, contact Engineering New Zealand
- electrical worker, contact the Electrical Workers Registration Board
- plumber, gasfitter or drainlayer, contact the Plumbers, Gasfitters and Drainlayers Board
