The Building Services (Registration) Act 2011 requires that an individual, partnership or company that carries out, or undertakes to carry out, building surveying work as the person issuing a compliance certificate must be a registered building surveying 'contractor' or a building surveying ‘practitioner’ employed by a local government (or other) permit authority.
Individuals that are registered building surveying 'practitioners' cannot carry out or undertake to carry out the building surveying work of issuing compliance certificates, but are permitted under the Act to be the nominated supervisor of a registered 'building service contractor' or a local government employee. Building surveyor accredited under the Local Government (Building Surveyors) Regulations 2008 will be taken to be registered as a building surveying ‘practitioner' under the Registration Act.
The Building Act 2011 commenced on 2 April 2012 thereby enabling Local Government or registered building surveying contractors to issue a certificate of design compliance required prior to a building permit being granted.
A Register of Building Surveyors, setting out the class (or practising level) of building surveying practitioners and contractors, is available below.
