You must submit a completed Individual licence application form.
Even if you are licensed in another state, that licence does not permit you to perform building work in Queensland. You will need to apply for a Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC) licence before you commence work in Queensland.
If you are applying under the Mutual Recognition Act 1992, you must submit a completed Mutual recognition application form to the Queensland Building and Construction Commission.
To apply under the Mutual Recognition Act 1992, you must be authorised to practice an occupation (equivalent to the Queensland occupation covered by this licence) in a participating state or territory under the Act. The interstate licence must remain current until the equivalent Queensland licence is issued.
Note: Applications will not be approved until all criteria are met so please ensure all the required documentation is included with your application.
To ensure your application will be processed please include the following application forms for a Trade contractor's licence (Individual).
- Individual Licence Application Form
- resume (detailing experience in the scope of work)
- managerial qualification
- technical qualification (completion certificate for apprenticeship or skills assessment
- Mutual recognition licence application form (for individuals who hold a current licence in another state)
- Proof of identity (if photo identification is not available)

QBCC site supervisor licence was introduced on 21 December 2007. If you already hold an existing QBCC licence (either Contractor or Nominee Supervisor) you are not required to obtain a Site Supervisor licence as you are already able to supervise building work. You are only required to obtain a Site Supervisor licence if you intend on supervising building work outside your existing licence class.
You may need to supply any missing documents or information which requires further clarification after applying.
