The Waikato Building Consent Group maintains the Independent Qualified Persons, and Producer Statement Authors Registers for the Waikato Region. You can search the WBCG registers and apply to be a registered member of the registers below.
Some building legislation requires the registration of professional and tradespeople. Registration is dependent on the applicant being able to prove their competency and /or qualifications to the organisation in charge of the register.
It is the responsibility of the owner or their approved agent, commissioning a building project, to check the credentials of the people they employ to design or construct the building. Check that the person is legally allowed to carry out the work proposed. Ask to see their registration card and check that their registration is current by looking them up on the appropriate register. It is also wise to check that there are no disciplinary actions being taken against them by the register.
Even though a person may be on a register, it is still the owners/agents responsibility to check that the person is working within the scope of their registration. If the register does not define the scope of work they are allowed to do, contact the person in charge of the register and get confirmation that the person you plan to employ is in fact approved to do this type of work – Refer to:
