Building reform

The Northern Territory Government (NTG) is prioritising reforms to building regulations to ensure confidence in the local building industry.

The introduction of commercial builder registration is a priority reform.

In March 2021, the Minister for Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics released a consultation paper on building contractor registrations, as part of 3 building reform initiatives.

Industry feedback from the initial consultation supported the introduction of building contractor registrations, resulting in the minister requesting the Building Advisory Committee work with the Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics to progress building contractor registrations.

In March to April 2022, the department prepared a further consultation paper with 2 registration options and invited feedback from stakeholders to nominate a preferred option.
