Disciplinary results 

The laws Fair Trading administers set minimum standards for businesses.

Under the same laws there are a range of administrative, civil and criminal enforcement remedies at our disposal.

The use of a range of available administrative, civil and criminal remedies allows for a balanced enforcement strategy between promoting behavioural change, including stopping the ongoing conduct, and achieving future compliance, rather than simply punishing a business for any wrong doing.

Where a licence holder fails to comply with a direction from Fair Trading or has breached the law, there are a range of escalating enforcement options available depending on the nature of the breach. These include:

  • a written warning
  • penalty infringement notices
  • enforceable undertakings – a direction requiring the person to agree to operate in a certain manner
  • imposing a condition on the licence/certificate, for example, a condition that prevents the holder from performing certain functions
  • licence suspension
  • cancellation – cancel a licence or certificate of registration
  • disqualification – declare a person as disqualified from holding a licence/certificate under the Act, either permanently or for a set period of time
  • disqualification from management – disqualify a person from being involved in directing, managing or conducting the business of a licensee.

More serious breaches of the legislation can also result in public warnings and prosecution leading to fines and imprisonment in some cases.

Information on recent disciplinary results is below by industry type.

Home building 

All residential building work in New South Wales must be done by a holder of a licence issued by Fair Trading, and anyone doing specialist work (electrical, plumbing, gasfitting, refrigeration and air conditioning work) must also be licensed by Fair Trading. Fair Trading maintains a comprehensive public register of licences issued and the register includes any disciplinary action, as well as other information such as:

  • the number of insurance claims paid
  • details of any penalty notices issued to the holder
  • any cancellations or suspensions of the licence
  • any instances of NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NCAT) orders not complied with.

To check a home building licence, go to Fair Trading’s Home building licence check page.
