Managing your Quality Assurance
Use these checklists to help you and your staff manage the quality of your applications and project documentation. Aim to provide complete, accurate and code compliant documentation that requires no requests from Council for further information that could slow down the processing approval of your application. Rework costs time and money for all involved.
If you are providing Producer Statements or Memoranda during, or at the end of, construction, please check that the document provides adequate information and that the author is on the Waikato Building Consent Group register, or other appropriate register e.g., Registers of Designers and Tradespeople.
All Producer Statements or Memoranda will be checked against the Producer Statement / Memoranda Checklist (see next section). If this information has not been provided, your Producer Statement / Memoranda will be rejected until you provide all the required information.
The following templates (PS1 - PS4 below) can be used if you are submitting Producer Statements or Memoranda. These templates contain all the required information of a Producer Statement. The Producer Statements that an IPENZ member produces are available from the IPENZ website. These are interactive PDF's, and are copyrighted to IPENZ, ACENZ and NZIA.
Alternatively, below are some templates that you can personalise. If you are using a personal template, please ensure you check your template against the Producer Statement Checklist to ensure all the required information has been provided.

- PS 1 Template (PDF 29kb) Word 2010 (60kb)
- PS3 is a Producer Statement given by the tradesperson to the designer stating that they have completed construction according to the designers plans.
- A Memorandum of Completion and Compliance is usually given by someone who has installed a building product or system to the Council stating that the construction meets compliance requirements. For example, waterproofing under a shower.
- Please note: the information required is the same as that of a PS3, therefore we have provided a template that can be used for either purpose.

Producer Statements for Construction Monitoring (PS4). For some projects that involve Specific Design (rather than acceptable solutions) or for projects that are very complex, the Building Consent Authority (BCA) may have requested that the Engineer (or Architect) provide a Producer Statement for construction monitoring (PS4). The BCA will use these statements in their decisions around compliance of the construction with the approved plans and specifications.

For Restricted Building Work you must use the form prescribed under the Building Act, or the MBIE form:
If you have provided a PS1 for the design work, you also need to provide a Certificate of Design Work (COW) - see above.
If you have provided a PS4 for the supervision of Restricted Building Work, you also need to provide a Record of Work (ROW) - see above.
Record of Work (ROW) - at the completion of the construction project a Record of Work (form) must be provided by all licensed building practitioners who carried out or supervised any work that is restricted building work. For more information, go to Licensed Building Practitioner page.
If you require assistance in selecting the correct application form or checklist, please contact the Building Unit of your local Council.
