The definition of building industry participant includes building contractors.
Contractors engaging subcontractors who are not constitutional corporations or are not carrying out work in a Territory or Commonwealth place must ensure that any agreement entered into in relation to building work with the subcontractor requires the subcontractor to act consistently with the Code in respect of building work that is the subject of the agreement.
The Building Code 2013 continues to apply in relation to building work to which it applied immediately before 2 December 2016. To find out which Building Code applies to you, use our Building Code assessment tool.
