Industrial Relations & Employment Obligations (IRE)

Before contractors (including project managers, head contractors, sub-contractors and trade contractors) will be permitted to tender for building work or be engaged to perform building work on any ACT Government site, they will be required to hold a current Industrial Relations and Employment Certificate (IRE Certificate). Contractors must maintain a current IRE Certificate while they are engaged on an ACT Government site.

How do I apply for an IRE certificate?  Details on how to apply for an IRE Certificate are outlined in the 'How to Apply - Information Sheet for Contractors' listed below under Information Sheets.

Why do I need an IRE Certificate?
The ACT Government has introduced a range of initiatives to ensure industrial relations and employment compliance best practice is part of the culture of the construction industry in the ACT. The initiatives are a part of the ACT Government's Compliance with Industrial Relations and Employment Obligations Strategy
