Council generally accepts Producer Statements from engineers that hold a current Chartered Professional Engineers (CPEng) practicing certificate and from persons who are qualified and experienced in the specific field for which the Producer Statement is being issued.
What is a Producer Statement?
A producer statement is a document prepared by a professional confirming his/her professional opinion. This opinion is based on stated reasonable grounds that aspects of design of a building achieve compliance with the building code, or that elements of construction have been completed and monitored in accordance with the approved building consent.
