Review of property industry training standards 

Independent panel report released 

To perform a review of the existing training standards within the NSW property services industry, an independent panel was commissioned by the NSW Government.

The panel of industry experts was nominated by key industry stakeholders.

After a consultation process, the panel produced a report of their findings and recommendations, published in June 2016. View the final report, A review of training for licensed occupations in the NSW property services industry (PDF size: 820kb).

The NSW Government is now considering the report. It is expected that proposed reforms to property industry training standards will be announced before the end of 2016.
