Proposed certification reforms

Posted by Pool + Spa Magazine on 12 September 2018

The NSW Government is progressing reforms to strengthen and simplify the building and certification system in NSW. The government proposes to replace the Building Professionals Act 2005 (BP Act), which regulates accredited certifiers, with the Building and Development Certifiers Bill 2018. 

The Bill delivers on the government's commitment to overhaul certifier regulation in its response to the statutory review of the BP Act through:

  • Clarifying certifiers' roles and responsibilities; 
  • Improving the independence of certifiers; 
  • tightening licensee probity requirements; 
  • improving complaint handling and disciplinary procedures for certifiers; and
  • other reforms to streamline, modernise and update the structure and administration of the Act.
