In accordance with regulation 93A (6) of the Development Regulations 2008 a private certifier must provide relevant documentation and renewal fees to the Registration Authority on, or prior to, the anniversary date of their registration.
To assist with the registration process, the Department provides several reminders regarding the yearly registration renewal as well as the expiry of accreditation and professional indemnity insurance.
Despite the number of reminders, complete documentation required for renewal purposes is not being received by the due dates.
From 1 July 2016, if complete documentation and payment has not been submitted by the expiry date, the Department will advise of the documentation required and remove the name of the private certifier from the Register of Private Certifiers. Statutory functions cannot be performed if accreditation, professional indemnity insurance and renewals are not in place.
Unless negotiated otherwise, the private certifier will then have two weeks to provide any outstanding documentation and payment. Should this not be received, a recommendation will be made to the Registration Authority to cancel the registration.
Should the private certifier wish to remain registered a new application form will need to be lodged.
