Building Mandatory Notification Form

Please read the below information before completing the Mandatory Notification Form

Supervisors Checklist

The form requires the supervisor’s checklist which includes provisions relating to the handling, installation and inspection of roof framing, which must be systematically “checked off” during the delivery and construction of the roof framing system.

A completed supervisor’s checklist, signed by a registered building work supervisor who has undertaken the required training, must be provided to Council within 1 business day after giving notice that the roof framing is complete.

After giving notice that the roof framing is complete, a person must not conceal the framing until after the expiration of two clear business days.

The supervisor’s checklist is required for 100% of building rules consents involving the construction of roof framing. Below are specific checklists dependant on the roof type and/or class.

Penalties

A person who breaches any of the above requirements is guilty of an offence, and may be liable to pay an expiation fee of $500, or be liable to a maximum penalty of $10,000.

Exemptions

Notification of roof frame completion, supervisor’s checklists and roof concealment do not apply to:

  • Class 10a - Verandahs, carports or the like unless  they are attached to any part of the roof of a building; or
  • Transportable buildings.

Owner Builders

As an owner builder, you must engage the services of a registered building work supervisor or private certifier to sign off on the project upon completion (i.e. sign off on Part A of the Statement of Compliance).  The legislation requires that you provide to Council the details of the supervisor or private certifier at the time of notification of commencement.  There are no exemptions from this requirement.

Where the value of any domestic building work contract is $12,000 or greater you must obtain from the contractor a certificate of building indemnity insurance for the work, and provide a copy of the certificate to the Council.
