Submissions to the Plumbing Regulations Sunset Review have now closed.
To enable Victoria to continue to have effective plumbing regulations, the Victorian Government is undertaking a review of the Plumbing Regulations 2008 prior to their expiry in November 2018.
The regulations provide detailed requirements in relation to plumbing work, plumbing practitioners, and the administration of plumbing work.
The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning is reviewing the current regulations and will develop options for new regulations to replace them. This work will be undertaken with the support of Victoria’s plumbing regulator, the Victorian Building Authority.
The department is now considering all feedback received during the consultation period, which will inform a Regulatory Impact Statement and new draft regulations that will be released for public comment in early 2018.
