The Plumbing and Drainage Act 2018 was passed by the Queensland Parliament on 11 September 2018.
The Plumbing and Drainage Regulation 2019 was approved by the Governor in Council on 4 April 2019.
The new Act will commence on 1 July 2019, along with the new Regulation and new Queensland Plumbing Wastewater Code.
This has been an extensive consultation and we would like to thank everyone who has had their say.
We have developed fact sheets to help industry and the community prepare for these changes to the plumbing laws.
