However, this Local Law does not apply to accomodation requiring registration under the Residential Services (Accreditation) Act 2002.
The registration and accreditation of a residential service is facilitated by the Queensland State Government’s; Residential Services Unit within Department of Communities (Office of Fair Trading).
