Licences are mandatory for many businesses, trades, and organisations, and are designed to protect the consumer from poor workmanship, unethical behaviour, and illegal and/or dangerous practices. 

Licences verify that:

  • an organisation is a legally registered entity
  • certain levels of qualification and skill sets have been achieved
  • certain regulations are adhered to in the running of a business
  • premises have been inspected and are legally deemed safe for the public.

You can check online to ensure the people or organisations you are dealing with are appropriately licensed.
