Plumbers, Gasfitters, and Drainlayers Act Review
The Plumbing Gasfitting and Drainlaying Act sets out the restrictions on sanitary plumbing, gasfitting and drainlaying work. The statutory review of the Act was completed in March 2021, eight years overdue.
Following the review, MBIE made some proposed changes, including the removal of exemptions for sanitary plumbing work and the development of a pathway to self-certification for plumbers and drainlayers.
A draft Bill was expected to be introduced in early 2022 but this has not yet happened.
