This is a reminder about changes to the class of Domestic Builder – Manager (DB-M).
The Domestic Builder Manager (DB-M) will be phased out on 30 June 2022.
The Victorian Building Authority (VBA) reminds relevant building surveyors (RBS) that building permits can only be issued naming a DB-M, CDB-M or DBU-40 as the builder until 31 January 2022.
The RBS cannot issue building permits naming DB-M, CDB-M or DBU-40 practitioners as the builder after this date.
The VBA encourages practitioners to move any open building permits to another class of registration, such as DB-L or DB-U, where possible.
A DB-M or CDB-M practitioner with an open permit after 30 June 2022 will remain registered to facilitate the closure of any open permits under that registration until: the issue of the occupancy permit or certificate of final inspection, or the expiration of the DB-M practitioner’s last building permit.
