About Us

Since its foundation over 100 years ago, Master Painters Australia has functioned as an independent representative for firms and individuals conducting business in the painting, decorating and signwriting trades. It is a non-profit employer association managed by a group of elected directors.

The MPA has two principal objectives – assisting the interests of its members in a business sense, and ensuring that the professional standards of the industry are upheld. In achieving these, the MPA makes a valuable contribution to its members and in particular, to the industry as a whole.

The MPA is the single most authoritive organisation in its field, enabling it to negotiate and co-ordinate a wide variety of business, educational and informational services for its members and the public.

The Master Painters Association recommends that all painting works conform to the Australian Standard Painting of Buildings AS/NZ 2311:2017 and The Master Painters Association Industry Standard for the Surface Coating Industry for all preparation and painting works undertaken on Commercial and Residential properties.
