The peak body representing certifiers in NSW has launched a campaign in the lead-up to the state election calling for “commonsense” reforms to the construction sector, including a comprehensive licensing scheme, mandatory insurance and a dedicated building portfolio.

The Association of Accredited Certifiers has called on the next state government to commit to eight “vital” reforms of the construction industry and to make the sweeping changes within the first 100 days of government after the election on March 23.
