The Licensed Building Practitioner Scheme (LBPS) is part of the Consumer Protection and Standards Branch of the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE). The Branch protects consumers through regulatory practice and occupational licensing schemes like the LBPS, which issues licenses to building practitioners. The Scheme encourages competent building practices by setting standards to receive licensing, and assists consumers to select suitably qualified building practitioners.

To support the LBPS Board Registrar, MBIE is seeking experienced and qualified professionals to carry out assessments of applications made to the Scheme. Assessors will be part of a panel located across New Zealand that performs assessment of candidate’s competency across their areas of expertise. Respondents are invited to respond who are:
• Licensed building practitioners located anywhere in New Zealand;
• Have experience/qualifications relevant to one or more LBPS license classes; and
• Have previous experience, ability and knowledge in assessment approaches and practices are invited to respond.

It is important that assessors have the technical expertise, knowledge and experience in the area of building practice that relates to the license class or classes they intend to assess. It is also essential that assessors have demonstrated experience, ability and knowledge of assessment approaches and practices.
