Notifiable work (Form 4)

On 1 November 2012, changes to the Plumbing and Drainage Act 2002 introduced a new category of plumbing and drainage work called ‘notifiable work’.

Notifiable work is the work a plumber or drainer can do without a local government permit or any need for mandatory inspections. All plumbing work outside the Schedule of Notifiable Works (Form 4) requires Council approval prior to commencement of work.
