Any class of construction licence may be issued with a condition or endorsement.
The details of any condition or endorsement appear on the licence card and are published on the list of construction practitioners.
This wording will either:
- add to the scope of works that a licensee is authorised to undertake
- restrict a licensee from performing certain functions or scopes of work
Conditions may be placed on a licence as a result of:
- disciplinary action
- the assessment process taking into account an individual's experience
- the mutual recognition process
Conditions can also be imposed at any time by the Construction Occupations Registrar if it is deemed necessary and desirable to protect the public.
Endorsements may be placed on a licence to increase the scope of works permitted. For example, a builder licence can be endorsed to carry out specialist building work like demolition or swimming pool installation. A plumber licence can be endorsed to install back-flow prevention devices. Endorsements may also be applied through the mutual recognition process.
