Plumbing Certificates of Compliance Audits (Inspections)

To ensure that plumbing work, certified through compliance certificates, meets the standard required to ensure consumer safety, the Plumbing Industry Registration Board conducts compliance audits.

A minimum of five per cent, randomly selected of all Plumbing Certificates of Compliance logged will be audited, ensuring that the relevant plumbing laws and standards are being met. Audits are conducted by PIRB Plumbing Auditors. Their role is to conduct on-site assessments of the work performed, against the particular Plumbing compliance certificate lodged and the plumbing laws and standards.
