In a press release, the Plumbers, Gasfitters and Drainlayers Board reports that a 29 October 2014 judgment has seen another Auckland man convicted and fined $4,050, plus court costs and solicitor’s fees for carrying out illegal work. This brings the number of prosecutions in the Auckland region to six in the month of October 2014 alone.
Anyone carrying out sanitary plumbing and gasfitting work without being authorised to do so by the PGDB breaches the Plumbers, Gasfitters, and Drainlayers Act 2006, and in doing so is subject to prosecution.
Unauthorised work can be dangerous and potentially fatal. It is the role of the PGDB to help keep New Zealand consumers safe and ensure that all plumbing, gasfitting and drainlaying installations are carried out by competent and qualified tradespeople.
Just give the team at Auckland Plumbers Group a call and we guarantee that all work is carried out to the necessary standards.
