  • Protecting Queenslanders from physical or financial harm suffered as a result of unfair or unresolved building disputes and non-compliant pools.

How we detect non-compliance

We detect non-compliance in the following ways:

  • complaints of non-compliance reported by members of the community
  • collaborating with key industry stakeholders to understand industry trends
  • collaborating with other regulators, government and agencies to better regulate and protect against harm
  • proactively identifying risk to detect compliance breaches and risks to prevent harm.
