Apply for owner-builder approval

Owner-builders are required, under the Building Services (Registration) Act 2011, to apply for approval from the Building Services Board.

When applying you must show that you have sufficient knowledge of the duties and responsibilities involved in being an owner-builder to the Building Services Board.

This can be done by completing an owner-builder course, being registered or licensed as a building industry professional or tradesperson in Western Australia, or having other relevant building industry qualifications or experience.
