Subbies Back Overdue Payment Fairness

Published:

Two of Queensland’s leading Specialist Trade Contractor Associations, the Master Plumbers’ Association of Queensland (MPAQ) and the National Fire Industry Association (NFIA) hosted a forum today for subcontractors.

Subcontractors were given the opportunity to hear first-hand from the Building Industry Fairness Implementation and Evaluation Panel in relation to project bank accounts and Chapter three (3) changes to the Building Industry Fairness Act.   

The Building Industry Fairness Reforms Implementation and Evaluation Panel is an independent panel working with government and the building industry to assess the implementation and effectiveness of the Building Industry Fairness Reforms.

The Chair of the panel, Ms Bronwyn Weir advised attendees that the panel has conducted evaluation and consultation activities for each building reform and will make recommendations to the Queensland Government in a report.

“Subbies will support any amendments to the laws that improve payment fairness,” NFIA CEO, Wayne Smith stated.

Minister de Brenni and the Queensland Government with the support of industry are working through the changes of implementing the new laws, and we expect to see positive outcomes through the implementation,” Executive Director of MPAQ, Penny Cornah said.

Queensland’s leading Specialist Trade Contractor Associations will continue to work with decision-makers throughout the implementation of the new payment laws to ensure the best possible outcome.
