Certificate of Compliance – AMR Plumbers
Within five working days of completing any major plumbing work, a AMR plumber undertaking the activities of a licensed plumbing contractor in WA must:
- complete, sign and date the certificate of compliance;
- provide the original certificate of compliance (yellow copy) to the Plumbers Licensing Board (the Board). Where drainage plumbing work is carried out a drainage plumbing diagram* must also be provided with the certificate;
- provide a copy of the certificate of compliance (blue copy) to the owner or occupier of the property where the plumbing work was carried out;
- where drainage plumbing work is carried out in non-sewered areas, provide a copy of the certificate of compliance (pink copy) to the local government authority. The local government authority may also require a copy of the drainage plumbing diagram; and
- retain a copy of the certificate of compliance (green copy) for six years.
* Please note licensed plumbing contractors are required to submit a drainage plumbing diagram when they are the responsible person for drainage plumbing work that involves the installation, alteration or extension of drainage plumbing. For more information go to Drainage plumbing diagrams. In addition, licensed plumbing contractors must complete a notification to the Board when major drainage plumbing has been completed. Please visit Drainage plumbing work notifications for more information.
If for any reason a AMR plumber undertaking the activities of a licensed plumbing contractor in WA commences plumbing work but will not complete all of the work identified in the notice, the plumbing work carried out must be certified. To certify partial plumbing work completed in relation to that described on the notice of intention the plumber must accurately reflect the work that has been carried out by completing the reverse side of the certificate of compliance when submitting it to the Board.
If a AMR plumber undertaking the activities of a licensed plumbing contractor in WA submits a notice of intention to the Board but the plumber has not commenced and will no longer be responsible for carrying out any of the plumbing work specified in the notice, the contractor must withdraw the notice by completing the reverse side of the certificate of compliance and submitting it to the Board.
Certificates of compliance can be lodged in person at Building and Energy 303 Sevenoaks Street Cannington, at any Department of Energy, Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DEMIRS) regional office or by posting to:
