An official register of building contractors needs to be compiled in order to weed out those who lack training and experience for particular projects, the Malta Developers' Association said on Wednesday.
It said such a register should categorise contractors according to their size and capacity.
"This system, which is in use in practically all European countries, ensures that whoever undertakes contracts of a certain size has the experience and the capability to do so," the association said.
"A building contractors’ register will enable the country to also ensure that these contractors are serious in the way they work. They would have the necessary know-how of building regulations and, most importantly, construction site management skills, which are of benefit to every citizen. In case of serious deficiencies, these contractors could be deregistered."
