1109. Hon ALISON XAMON to the minister representing the Minister for Commerce:
I refer to my question without notice 1255 answered on 28 November 2018 and the recent passing in Victoria of the Professional Engineers Registration Bill 2019.
(1) Has a set of consistent national registration requirements now been established?
(2) When does the minister anticipate that a similar bill might be tabled in Western Australia?
Hon ALANNAH MacTIERNAN replied:
I thank the member for the question. The following information has been provided to me by the Minister for Commerce.
(2) The government is currently considering a series of reforms to the legislative framework for the building and construction industry. Registration of engineers who work in the building industry is being considered as part of these reforms.
