What needs building approval

A private building certifier can advise whether you need a development building work permit. Some minor building work may be accepted development or exempt building work. This list is comprehensive but does not include every scenario. You should seek advice from a private building certifier before commencing your project.

Under the Building Regulation 2021, some types of building work don't require approvals, including accepted development. The QLD Government website explains when you don't need building approval.

Your certifier can lodge your building work application and any associated plumbing applications on your behalf.
