How we make a difference

Master Plumbers and Mechanical Services Association of Australia (Master Plumbers) was established in 1891 and is the industry’s representative and voice on safety, standards and training.

Representing members interests

Master Plumbers’ focus is on supporting our members and ensuring the health and safety of our community. We provide a qualified and expert perspective on issues related to the plumbing profession and opportunities to enhance the future of our industry.

Master Plumbers has identified seven key priorities, which we believe are critical to the ongoing improvement of our industry and the safety of the communities our members serve.

  1. Ensuring the health and safety of our community
  2. Safeguarding consumers’ access to compliant plumbing products
  3. Providing a fit-for-purpose compliance system to meet the increasing complexity in plumbing
  4. Delivering a four-year comprehensive plumbing apprenticeship program as a minimum requirement for registration
  5. Providing lifelong learning to future-proof our industry
  6. Supporting security of payment for plumbing contractor
  7. Cutting red tape to build a more efficient plumbing industry

These priorities are outlined in the report “Plumbing Industry Priorities”, which was published on behalf of members and was used by Master Plumbers to lobby all political parties in the lead up to the last State election.
