Building Contract Review Program (BCRP)

The Building Contract Review Program (BCRP) aims to assist new entrants to the building industry, as well as existing small to medium builders, to obtain eligibility where the builder is unable to satisfy all the requirements in order for the eligibility application to be approved. Censeo are proud to confirm we are 1 of of only 5 approved providers of BCRP inspections. 

What is BCRP?

Builders who only satisfy minimum eligibility requirements may be required to participate in the BCRP for contracts with a value of $50,000 and over.

In some situations, builders may wish to take on one-off projects that are outside their Eligibility approval and the Building Contract Review Program may be utilised for this purpose.

The Building Contract Review Program allows builders to continue their business while at the same time providing suitable protection for homeowners and the Home Building Compensation Fund.

Please note: BCRP is not compulsory for all builders.

Please see your Insurance Broker or Intermediary to determine if you need to participate in the program as a condition of your Eligibility.
