You will require this registration if you intend to operate as a building inspector. Building inspectors assist building surveyors, builders, contractors and owners by ensuring that construction projects meet building regulations and codes of practice. They review approved documentation and make on-site inspections during building work, checking that proper methods and materials are used. Inspection results are reported to the building surveyor.
There are two classes of registration:
- Unlimited: Building inspectors (unlimited) are permitted to inspect all classes and components of buildings, and all varieties and types of construction.
- Limited: Building inspectors (limited) are permitted to inspect certain classes of buildings only, which are determined by the agency during the assessment process.
You must register with the VBA eToolbox to access the required forms.
Please consult the responsible agency for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
