Building (Professional Indemnity Insurance) Amendment Regulation 2020
Amendment to the Building Regulation 2006
An amendment to the Building Regulation 2006 extends the ‘exemption period’ that allows building certifiers to hold professional indemnity insurance with an exclusion relating to external cladding from 30 June 2021 to 30 June 2022.
The amendment will:
- extend the ‘exemption period’ for a further 12-months that allows private building certifiers to hold an external cladding related exclusion on their professional indemnity insurance policies
- give certifiers clarity on when their licences will be effective following the expiry of the exemption period on 30 June 2022
- allow an exempted licence (issued on or prior to 30 June 2022) to continue to apply until the exempted licence expires. For example, if the private certifier holds an exempted licence that expires on 12 September 2022 the licence is current to that date. On renewal, the professional indemnity insurance required will be as prescribed in legislation.
