Changes to registrar operating model

MBIE recently undertook an independent review to assess the licenced building practitioner (LBP) and electrical worker (EW) registrar operating model.

As a result of this assessment, both the LBP and EW registrar roles have been integrated with the Operations Manager role on an interim basis, until the impact on the occupational licensing of LBPs from any upcoming changes as part of the Building System Legislative Reform Programme is clear. We expect this interim model to be in place until at least July 2020.

Duncan Connor will continue as Registrar of Electrical Workers. Duncan also leads the Occupational Licensing team as Operations Manager and is supported by a strong technical team who have significant experience in the electrical worker space. Duncan will continue to work closely with the Electrical Workers Registration Board.
