Under the Australian Government Building and Construction WHS Accreditation Scheme (the Scheme), companies are initially accredited for a period of up to three years. At the end of this period, builders need to reapply for accreditation to remain accredited. This is known as ‘reaccreditation’. Companies seeking re-accreditation may be granted an accreditation period of up to 6 years

Reaccreditation is a requirement of the Fair Work (Building Industry - Accreditation Scheme) Regulation 2016 (the Regulation).
