Engineered stone ban in Queensland to come into effect in full from 1 July 2024.

Following the agreement of a national ban of engineered stone in December 2023, the state government announced that the ban will come into effect in full in Queensland from 1 July 2024.

From 1 July, work in the manufacturing, supply, processing and installation of benchtops, panels and slabs must cease, even if the contract was entered into before the ban date.

The government will not adopt a transition period for the ban.

Work on legacy engineered stone (products installed before 1 July 2024) will be permitted and subject to a national framework under model work health and safety laws.

Businesses planning to undertake permitted work with legacy engineered stone will be required to notify WHS regulators, failure to provide the required information will constitute an offence.
