Details :

Under the current contractors registration system in Hong Kong, a contractor carrying out any building or street works must be registered with the Buildings Department either as a general building contractor, specialist contractor and/or minor works contractor.


Under the Buildings Ordinance (BO), a Registered General Building Contractor (RGBC) or a Registered Specialist Contractor (RSC) should provide continuous supervision for carrying out building or street works in accordance with the Safety Supervision Plan. Every Registered Contractor (RC) must appoint authorized representatives to act for the purposes of the BO, and the appointed representative is commonly known as the “Authorized Signatory” (AS).
