Five-year registration renewal
Registration renewal now occurs every five years for all registered building practitioners.
The Act requires the VBA to conduct a thorough assessment every five years of a practitioner's eligibility to conduct business before it can renew an existing registration. Practitioners will need to complete and lodge the 'Five Year Registration Renewal Application Form' at least three months before the end of the five-year registration period. The Five-Year Registration Renewal application is more detailed than the annual check because of the assessment requirements set out in the Act.
If you don’t renew your registration!
Failure to complete the Five-year registration renewal on time, will result in your registration expiring and you cannot carry out any work or use the title of a registered building practitioner.
Hot Tip – Schedule a reminder on your calendar to notify you to avoid registration expiring
