NSW Plumbing Reforms – From 1 July 2012
As of 1 January 2013 Fair Trading became the state’s single plumbing and drainage regulator for all on-site plumbing and drainage works.
NSW Fair Trading has delegated inspection and enforcement powers to regional councils so they may continue conducting plumbing and drainage inspections.
