Building Practitioners Board
From 1 September 2016, the Building Practitioner's Board ceased to exist except for finalising referred matters. Their functions, powers and responsibilities have been transferred to the VBA, including:
- Registrations: The VBA will determine all applications for registration from 1 September 2016. Any applications received but not determined by the BPB by 31 August 2016 will be decided by the VBA.
- Disciplinary action: If the BPB issued a notice of inquiry on or before 31 August 2016, the inquiry will continue under the law in place before 1 September 2016, and will be decided by the BPB.
- Owner-builder certificates of consent: Any applications deemed to be made before 1 September 2016 will be determined under the law in effect up to 31 August 2016.
