Building Certifiers in Queensland are required under the Building Act 1975 to have a certain level of coverage via Professional Indemnity Insurance. This allow a Certifier to be endorsed by the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC) to act as a Private Building Certifier, issuing approval for building works. Without PI Insurance, a Private Building Certifier can not issue Development approvals for Building Work. Effectively, building work has the potential to slow and stop as Certifiers are restricted from trading.
