Attention all Plumbers and Drainers Working in Regional NSW

NSW Plumbing Reforms - 1 July 2012

From 1 January 2013 Fair Trading will become the state’s single plumbing and drainage regulator for all on-site plumbing and drainage works.  NSW Fair Trading will be delegating inspection and enforcement powers to regional councils so they may continue conducting plumbing and drainage inspections.

What does this mean for plumbers and drainers in regional NSW

For plumbers and drainers working in regional NSW (that is work outside of areas where Sydney Water or Hunter Water are the water and sewer provider) you continue to call the local council to book inspections, pay inspection fees, submit documentation and to make enquires.

Documents and forms

As part of the reforms, which aim to introduce consistency in requirements of Fair Trading and local councils, plumbers and drainers are required to submit the following documents at the required stages of the work.

• A ‘Notice of Work’ (NoW) is to be issued to the regulator no later than 2 business days before the work is carried out
• A ‘Certificate of Compliance’ (CoC) is to be issued to the regulator and a copy to the person for whom the work was carried out on completion of the final inspection
• A ‘Sewer Service Diagram’ (SSD) is to be issued to the regulator and a copy the owner of the land or the owner’s agent.

Codes and Standards

The NSW Code of Practice for Plumbing and Drainage is no longer the technical standard - it has been replaced by the Plumbing Code of Australia, which also calls up the Australian Standard 3500.
