QBCC Redefines the rules for Electricians Installing single head split air-conditioning systems

NECA's lobbying with the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC) has redefined the rules for an electrician installing a single split head air-conditioning system. 

The rules around installing a single head split system, has been somewhat confusing and NECA has consistently been arguing for a fairer system. The fact sheet provides for clearer examples of what constitutes mechanical services work and what constitutes building work.

NECA members have been sent an email clarifying these new rules.
