Practice advice

Older practice advice should not be relied upon for currency. Practice advice relates to the legislation in force at the time, which may since have been amended.

Seek current advice from a solicitor, a more experienced certifier, the Building Professionals Board, or another government or regulatory body as appropriate.

The Building Professionals Board disclaims all responsibility and all liability (including without limitation, liability in negligence) for all expenses, losses, damages and costs which you might incur as a result of the information on this page being inaccurate or incomplete in any way and for any reason.

From 2010 to 2013 the Board published a series of summaries of selected complaints and investigations. These were intended to assist certifiers, consent authorities and the public to achieve good outcomes from the certification process.
