Role As Assigned Certifier.

Since the introduction of the new building control amendment regulations in March 2014, every long commencement notice requires the appointment of a Design Certifier, Assigned Certifier, Builder and Building owner with each party accepting their roles.

Ryan & Associates act as Assigned certifier on a number of projects in addition to an ancillary certifier for Parts B and M of the regulations.

What does the assigned certifier do?

• They set up the commencement notice on the BCMS.
• They appoint all roles.
• They coordinate inspection plans and certification from ancillary certifiers, ancillary competent persons, the builder and the design certifier.
• The assigned certifier inspects the building and submits the certificate of completion for the building.
