Important Notes

This list of records contains the accepted academic qualifications (AAQ) by the Buildings Department (BD) for contractors' registration under the Buildings Ordinance. The AAQ is a list of historical records that have been accepted for Authorized Signatories (AS), Technical Directors (TD) and Other Officers (OO) of Registered Contractors.


The AAQ aims to provide a web-based reference to applicants for AS/TD/OO (Users). The list is intended to enhance public access to information. It should be noted, however, that the list is not meant to be exhaustive.


The Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) does not warrant or guarantee the accuracy and suitability of the information contained in the AAQ in any particular case. The Government of the HKSAR disclaims all liabilities for any loss or damage to any person arising from or as a consequence of the use of or reliance on any information contained in or omitted from the AAQ. Any academic qualification shown on the list shall not be construed as direct acceptance by BD. In case of doubt, the Users should seek advice, as appropriate, from BD, professional institutes (e.g. The Hong Kong Institute of Architects, The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers and The Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors) or public organisations for academic accreditation (e.g. The Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications).

The Administrator reserves the right to change, alter, add, delete, revise and update any information contained in the AAQ at such time and in such manner as it considers appropriate. Notwithstanding anything herein contained, the Administrator is not obliged to and shall not be required to keep all the information contained in the AAQ up-to-date.
