Limits of a Building Information Certificate

A building information certificate does not prevent Council from issuing other types of notices and orders. For example, Council may still issue notices and orders in relation to fire safety, swimming pool safety and other public health and safety matters.

A building certificate does not certify the barriers and fencing to swimming pools or spa pools complies with the Swimming Pools Act 1992. A separate application called a Request for Inspection and Certificate of Compliance for a Swimming Pool can be made with an Accredited Certifier  or Council to obtain a Certificate of Compliance for a Swimming Pool (Council)

In order to determine an application for a building information certificate, Council will inspect the building and review relevant Council records and documents forming part of the application.
