PRACTICE

Approving Officer’s Discretion to Order Inspection

The decision to order an inspection is a matter for the approving officer and not for the registrar.

Re-inspection Ordered after One Year

Generally, the approving officer does not require the surveyor to re-inspect a survey until the expiry of one year from the date of an initial inspection conducted under this section.
