All major plumbing work, except emergency work, will require a notice of intention to be submitted to the Building Commission at least 24 hours prior to any work being undertaken. A licensed plumbing contractor must not carry out, permit or arrange for major plumbing work to be carried out unless a notice of intention for the work has been submitted.
A notice of intention can only be submitted by the licensed plumbing contractor to which it is registered. Incomplete or unreadable notices will not be accepted.
If applicable, the new sanitary installation fee is payable at the time of lodging the notice of intention.
Payment of the new installation fixture fee must accompany the notice of intention where payment of this fee is required.
What if emergency work is being carried out?
Where emergency plumbing work is carried out, the requirement to submit a notice of intention with the Plumbers Licensing Board 24 hours prior to the work commencing will not apply. However, the notice is to be provided with the certificate of compliance within five working days of completion of the work.
How to lodge a notice of intention
The licensed plumbing contractor who will be responsible for the work must complete, sign and date the notice.
Notices of intention can be lodged by posting to:
Plumbers Licensing Board
Locked Bag 14
Cloisters Square WA 6850
Level 1, Mason Bird Building
303 Sevenoaks Street
Cannington WA 6107
