Both the building contractor and owner are responsible for ensuring building work is carried out to a standard of quality and finish required by the owner under the conditions of contract. The private certifier is not responsible for standards of workmanship higher than the acceptable health and safety standards called upon by State legislation. Private certifiers are licensed to practice by the Queensland Building and Construction Commission and must abide by State legislation and Code of Conduct.

The Code and the laws require a private certifier to act in the public interest and not take action that would compromise the health and safety of any person, the amenity of their property or significantly conflict with a local council’s planning scheme. The Code also sets out standards of
conduct and professionalism expected from certifiers.

Once we have received all documents required, the certifier generally takes 10 to 15 business days.
