FAQs for Pallet Racking Consent

Pallet Racking installations do require a council consent. Councils usually consider pallet racking to be part of the building structure and therefore require a consent.


The other reason that installing pallet racking in your facility requires consent is because it often impacts fire and egress within the building and the council want to ensure that this stays compliant.

A pallet racking consent requires multiple documents. These include, but are not limited to: Consent Authority, Producer Statements (PS1, PS2, PS3, PS4), Updated Fire and Egress Report, Emergency Lighting Report,

Obtaining a consent is almost always possible. However, in some cases, the change of use for the building can require major upgrades to the building before a Code Compliance Certificate can be issued. For example, if your building is fire rated for storage up to 3m high and you are looking to install 5m high pallet racking, you may find that a significant upgrade investment is required for the sprinkler system.

While the consenting process usually incurs similar costs, the upgrades required for your building would incur additional costs. For pallet racking less than 4.5m high a PS2 is not usually required. This means the process usually costs $6000-$7000 for producer statements and $11,000-12,000 for the consenting process. For pallet racking taller than 4.5m high a PS2 will often be requested. This can add $4000 to the process cost.

From the point of confirming your racking layout design, the consenting process usually takes 8-12 weeks. Factors that impact the timing are the availability and quality of existing documents for your building and the age of the building. Usually older buildings take more time as documents are less detailed and more difficult to source.
