Plumbing and drainage reform
From 1 July 2012, NSW Fair Trading will become the state’s plumbing and drainage regulator.
From this date, the Plumbing Code of Australia (PCA) will become the technical standard for all plumbing and drainage work in NSW.
The new system means plumbers will be able to work more easily across different regions, without needing to know local variations.
The PCA calls up AS/NZS 3500 and it sets out performance requirements for the design, construction, installation, replacement, repair, alteration and maintenance of plumbing and drainage installations
For more information about the PCA go to the Plumbing code and standards page on the Fair Trading website.
