All sanitary plumbing and drainage work that is regulated by the Plumbing and Drainage Act 2002 must be carried out by a person who holds a license or interim license that entitles the person to perform the work.

It is the license holder's responsibility to ensure that the plumbing and drainage work is inspected before the work is covered up.
