Form 4A

Using a nominated representative on myQBCC

You can now nominate someone to lodge and search for Form 4/4As for notifiable plumbing and drainage work on your behalf. This person is your ‘nominated representative’.

Your nominated representative does not require a QBCC licence number, but they do need to have a myQBCC account. As the licensee, you must also give your nominated representative the appropriate permissions under your licence details to lodge Form 4s on your behalf.

Notifiable work audits

Plumbing and drainage licensees are often curious as to how the QBCC conducts their audits.

When it comes to notifiable work administration audits, there are three audit programs – random, compliance and real estate.

For random audits – plumbing and drainage companies are randomly selected using online searches, industry advertisements, newspapers, contractor licence lists, radio advertising and vehicle advertising.

Form 4/4A reminder for backflow prevention devices

There has been confusion in the industry about whether a Form 4/4A is required for backflow prevention devices.

A licensee is required to lodge a Form 4/4a if they install, replace or remove a testable backflow prevention device (refer to category 8 of schedule 2, Standard Plumbing and Drainage Regulation 2003).

A licensee is required to lodge a Form 9 with the Local Government Authority (LGA) every time they test a backflow prevention device.
