Welcome to PIRB


In keeping with the proposed new labour regulations, and; also the compulsory regulations

being developed under the Water Services Act, and; also the requirements of an increasing

number of local authorities for registration of plumbers, the Institute of Plumbing of South Africa

had commissioned the establishment of inclusive system of registration of all levels of

participants practicing in the plumbing industry.

Under the auspices of the Plumbing Industry, formally represented by the Institute of Plumbing

of South Africa this body has been named the “Plumbing Industry Registration Board” (PIRB).

This initiative was started principally to promote plumbing outcomes that are legally compliant,

sustainable and to protect the health, safety and effective use of water and protection of the

consumers and also the environment for all South Africans.

The PIRB to some extent is based on a model used by the Plumbing Industry Commission in

the (Australian) State of Victoria for –training; qualification; standard setting; registration;

licensing; inspection; enforcement; insurance of work; and quality assurance through the issuing

of plumbing certificates of compliance. The World Plumbing Council has complimented this

model as one worthy of emulation.
