QBCC have now determined that it is a requirement in Queensland for the company selling you and the company installing your Steel Tank or the company selling or installing a water tank liner are required to hold an appropriate licence class.
For Steel tanks with a liner assembled onsite a minimum Builder Low rise Licence or a Structural Metal Fabrication and erection licence is now a requirement.
For water tank liner installations, a minimum Builder Low rise, plumbing or Water proofing licence is required.
Before you make your final purchasing decision please ensure you have asked if the company you want to buy from has an appropriate QBCC licence and if so which licence class do they hold.

DOES YOUR WATER TANK INSTALLER NEED A LICENCE IN QUEENSLAND?
Response from QBCC on Licence requirements
To construct a water tank on-site in Queensland, you will be required to hold a builder licence or a structural metal fabrication licence. If you were to deliver a tank to a site and place it on a pre-prepared base, then a licence would not be required. If you are building them on-site a licence is required. Information on licensing and the licence classes can be found on the links below.
If you have any questions regarding the licence application process, please call our contact centre on 139 333.
