Building and construction—penalties
(Question No 1284)

Ms Le Couteur asked the Minister for Regulatory Services, upon notice, on 13 April 2018:

In relation to demerit points issued during the 2016-17 financial year under Construction Occupations (Licensing) Act 2004 and other building and construction legislation, (a) which licensees and entities received demerit points, (b) how many demerit points did each receive and (c) for what breaches/offences were the demerit points issued.

Mr Ramsay: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:


(a) The details of which licensees and entities received demerit points cannot be disclosed. Section 102 of the Construction Occupations (Licensing) Act 2004 (COLA) states that the Construction Occupations Registrar must ensure that information in the demerit points register is kept securely and may be disclosed only in accordance with COLA or another law in force in the ACT. The only power of disclosure about a licensee’s demerit points is by application by the licensee themselves.

(b) As above.

(c) Demerit points are issued for a variety of breaches with the grounds for issuing demerit points appearing in Schedule 2 of the Construction Occupations (Licensing) Regulation 2004. The tables below identify for each relevant occupation the item number and description of the ground for occupational discipline where demerit points have been applied to licensees in the 2016/2017 financial year.



carrying out building work when not in commencement notice or supervised by notice builder


failure to give written notice to certifier about reaching inspection stage or obtain written permission before proceeding


carrying out or supervising building work without replacing or repairing damaged sign within 2 days or prescribed period
