Q: What is the Module 4D – Field Review Declaration?
A: It is a form provided by Tarion that the FRC (B19 consultant) completes after carrying out the final walkthrough inspection in which the cost of rectification for pending deficiencies is determined for each risk area applicable to the project.
Q: What is Inspection of Common Elements Construction Defects Report (Final Walkthrough Report)?
A: This report summarizes the inspection that is carried out by the FRC when the project is completed to go through all the common elements, whether its’ construction related deficiencies still pending and/or aesthetic elements as well.
Q: What is the Notice of Completion?
A: This is a form provided by Tarion that the FRC is required to complete and provide with the final report which notifies Tarion that the B19 scope of work has successfully been completed.
Q: When is the Final Report due?
A: The final report must be submitted within 90 days after the condominium is registered.
Q: Why does the FRC continue to issue 60-day reports after construction is completed?
A: Tarion requires the FRC continue to issue 60-day reports until the final report is submitted to Tarion; this is to ensure that Tarion continues to be informed of the status of the documents review and report issuing timeline.
Q: Who is required to issue the Final Report?
A: The final report must be issued by the vendor/builder not the FRC, according to Tarion’s guidelines. The report can be issued by the FRC to Tarion if the client provides written consent of that.

A: Yes, the final report must be submitted within the deadline indicated even with mandatory documents missing. The report will be rejected but the documents can be submitted later in order to complete the package.
Q: How is the Final Report submitted to Tarion?
A: The Vendor/Builder must send the report through email to Tarion and include the FRC in the communication.
Q: What happens after the Final Report is submitted to Tarion?
A: The Tarion representative assigned to the project will review the report and will schedule a walkthrough to review the deficiencies noted by the FRC in the report, if any.
