The NT Plumbers & Drainers Licensing Board is a statutory authority established under section 5 of the Plumbers & Drainers Licensing Act. It is responsible for the issue of Advanced Tradesman licences and Journeyman registration cards.
The Board administers the Plumbers and Drainers Licensing Act 1983, which applies to declared plumbing licence areas. The Board ensures that only qualified persons obtain licences, registration cards and certificates. It is also responsible for the assessment and maintenance of standards of workmanship and consumer protection by investigation of complaints and, where appropriate, taking disciplinary action.
The Board functions in conjunction with other authorities which, under their respective legislation, require authorised plumbing and drainage works to be carried out by licensed tradesmen.
Forms and general information for plumbing licences are also available through the Territory Business Centres.

Once you complete your apprenticeship as a Plumber & Drainer in the NT, you should immediately apply for a Journeyman Registration to enable you to continue working in the industry. If you then decide to move interstate, you can apply for registration in that state under the Mutual Recognition system. If you do not register as a Journeyman in the NT before leaving, it will be much more difficult to register elsewhere.
A registered Journeyman may carry out plumbing/draining work under the general direction of an Advanced Tradesman. A Journeyman may supervise the work of apprentices and trades assistants but is not permitted to contract for plumbing/draining work in his own right.
