Building Commission Industry Bulletin 72 - Notice of completion: inspections and tests

Information status

All documents issued prior to 1 July 2017 were issued by the former Department of Commerce. Documents listed here are the latest versions available. For more information on this document, please contact

The Building Act 2011 (the Act) requires certain inspections and tests to be conducted during or at completion of building work before a notice of completion is provided to the permit authority. The Building Regulations 2012 (the Regulations) sets out what those inspections and tests are.

The information in this industry bulletin is intended for:

  • building surveyors – to assist in identifying the relevant inspections and tests;
  • permit authorities – to list the relevant inspections and tests on the building permit; and
  • builders – to submit a notice of completion with the relevant inspection certificates.

A sample form has been developed to include the information required in an inspection certificate.
