Building Professionals Board web linking policy

The Board provides access to information in a range of ways. One mechanism is information provided on the Board's website. To enhance this information and to make information that is sourced from elsewhere available to accredited certifiers and consumers, we sometimes provide links to other websites. We also allow other organisations to link to the Board's website.

Links to the Building Professionals Board website

The Board welcomes links from your website to the Board's website. If you plan to create a link, please follow these guidelines:

  • Links to the Board's site should preferably be to the homepage or other high level page. Linking to other pages may pose some risk, as the page to which you link may move or become unavailable.
  • The correct name for the site is NSW Building Professionals Board.
  • The NSW Building Professionals Board logo is subject to copyright and may only be used by permission. It cannot be used for web linking purposes.
  • The Board's website should be opened in a new window and not within a frame of your own branding.
  • You must not use the link to provide, or in any way imply, endorsement by the Board, of your organisation, services or products.
  • You must not pass off content from our site as your own. This includes copying or re-using parts of the site.

Links from the Building Professionals Board website

Under some circumstances, we will link to other websites. Links are restricted to the following sites:

  • Government (state, federal and local)
  • Australian and NSW industry and professional organisations
  • Commercial organisations that deliver Board-approved education and training for certifiers in NSW (specific criteria will apply).

The Board reserves the right to determine the placement of any listing and to include, exclude or withdraw a website link at its discretion. We will not participate in link exchange arrangements with third party commercial websites.

The Board does not accept responsibility or liability for any loss, damage, cost or expense that might occur as a result of the use of or reliance upon, materials which appear at the linked sites (see our disclaimer).
