The Plumbing Industry Registration Board (PIRB) is responsible to maintain and effectively administrate a live and updated registration system and database of all active plumbing practitioners within South African.

PIRB registered persons are required to acquire new and updated levels of knowledge and skills that will not only add measurable benefits to the practice of plumbing compliant with mandatory national standards and regulations, but also enhance and promote professional integrity of the plumbing industry.

In terms of the National Qualifications Framework Act (Act 67 of 2008), the PIRB is charged to promote the protection of the public from malpractice related to the fulfilment of the professional duties and responsibilities of professionals registered with them as well as encourage social responsibility and accountability within the professions relating to professional services communities and individuals.
