Building practitioners and general concreters may register for a concreting licence in Victoria from the Victorian Building Authority. Only registered building practitioners may carry out domestic building and concreting work valued at over $5,000.
The Domestic Builder - Limited registration covers general concreting, and specific codes can be added for building practitioners wishing to specialise in a particular expertise, for example:
Swimming pool concreting experts must obtain DB-L-S registration
Floor slab and footing concreters must obtain DB-L-O registration
