How long does my information appear on the disciplinary register for?

Ten years, then it will automatically be removed from the public register.

The Construction Occupations Registrar maintains the right to keep a record of information removed from the register.

Can my information be taken off the disciplinary register?

If you were subject to rectification orders, contravention of rectification orders or an interim licence suspension under section 59 of the Construction Occupations (Licensing) Act 2004 you may apply for removal of the information from the register.

The Registrar must be satisfied that no further information in relation to rectification orders, contravention of rectification orders or interim licence suspensions have been recorded against the licensee and it is five years or longer since the day, or last day to which the action occurred.
