A building certifier must ensure structures are safe to the public and that all laws, building codes and regulations are met.
The first thing a building certifier will do, is inspect your plans and supporting documents, completing a preliminary study. From here, you will receive an Information Request outlining everything required to obtain a successful Decision Notice for your project.
A building certifier is authorized to issue you with the following documentation:
- Building Permit (Northern Territory)
- Decision Notice (Queensland)
- Inspection certificates
- Final occupancy permit (Northern Territory)
- Alternative solutions
- Siting applications
- Informant notices
It is important to do your research and shop around, Private certifiers can often offer you better deals, better customer experience and shorter time-frames.
Whether you are building your dream home, an entertainers Patio or simply a shed out the back, you will require a certifier for guidance and advice. For more information on roles and responsibilities of a certifer visit the QBCC website.
