When should I submit the form?

You must report any job that involves notifiable work to us within 10 business days of the work becoming operational or the issue of the customer’s invoice.

Who should submit the form?

A responsible person - this is:

  • a full plumber and drainer; or
  • a licensed supervisor, if you are a provisional licensee

If there are multiple licensees, one licensee (as the responsible person for the work) can submit the form on behalf of the other licensees.

Who needs a copy of the form?

You must provide a copy of the form to the owner/occupier of the property. If you are doing maintenance work for real estate agents, a copy of the form should be given to the owner or another person or entity who contracted the work.

How many forms do I lodge if there is more than one category of work on the same job?

Where more than one category of notifiable work is performed on a premises under a single transaction, typically, only one form needs to be lodged.   In determining whether a combination of jobs form part of a single transaction, we consider the following factors:

  • whether the work was included in a single work order or quotation
  • when the work was completed and ready to be used by the occupant of the premises
  • when the licensee issued an invoice for the work.

For example, if you carry out a bathroom renovation and also install a new hot water heater on the same premises as part of a single transaction, only one form is required.
