docx icon RET-agents-site-audit-0312.docx Example site audit declaration When duplicate SWH tank serial numbers or duplicate PV panel numbers are entered into the REC Registry, the Clean Energy Regulator will require agents to conduct a site audit of the systems involved. The more evidence agents can supply to the Clean Energy Regulator of the inspection occurring the more likely their STCs will get passed without issue. One of the ways to conduct a site audit if serial numbers are duplicated is for agents to ask installers to go back to the site and fill out a site audit declaration. The site audit declaration must state the address, tank brand, model, serial number, date of inspection and signature of installer. This document provides an example template for installers. Other ways to conduct a site audit are: 1. Agents ask installers or home owners to take photos of the serial numbers involved. They then provide the the Clean Energy Regulator with a copy of these photos along with a signed REC Assignment Form that confirms tank serial number. 2. Agents ring the owner of the system and ask them to complete a physical inspection while they are on the phone. Following this conversation the agent informs the Clean Energy Regulator in an email stating the owner visually checked and confirmed the tank serial number.
