What does a Private Certifier Do?

A private certifier can perform the following functions:

  • Assess whether the proposed building work complies with acceptable health and safety standards called up by building legislation (i.e. Building Code of Australia);
  • Issue approval for the building work;
  • Carry out inspections to determine if the building complies with building legislation and any conditions they impose on the approval;
  • Issue a final inspection certificate for the building work; and
  • Take any necessary action to ensure the building work complies with the legislation.
