On 1 November 2012 a new category of plumbing and drainage work called "notifiable work" commenced in Queensland.  This new category was introduced to reduce red tape, delays and costs for licensees, local governments and consumers.  Notifiable work extends the amount of work a plumber or drainer can perform without a permit or any requirement for mandatory inspections.

Further information as to the criteria, assessment and process for notifiable work is available from the Queensland Building & Construction Commission website.
