However, to carry out minor repairs, certifiers must be authorised under the Home Building Act to carry out swimming pool building or structural landscaping.
Owners do not have to use the certifier who inspected their pool if minor works to make it compliant cost under $1,000. The owner can employ others or do the work themselves.
REINSW made a submission in response to the proposed amends to the Building Professionals Regulation 2007 in relation to E1 certifiers in November 2015.
The submission supported the rationale in principle, but was unable to say if it is acceptable as it does not know the requirements of E1 certifiers needed to achieve its objectives.
