I understand that I need a Roof Plumber to install Guttering and trim but do I need a Registered Plumber to install the roof sheets? I read in a book that I don't but I need evidence for my Building Surveyor.

If the building is to be a dwelling, then my understanding is it needs to be 'signed off' by a registered plumber for the purposes of receiving an occupancy permit and for insurance purposes.

Check with the Building commission at http://www.buildingcommission.com.au and let us know what you found.

I think it depends where you are. Here in WA I think you can install your own roof. I know some of the eastern states are fussy about this.

A lot of the time it is worth enlisting the help of a registered tradesperson to do jobs such as this to appease the bureacrats. I have heard of a lot of stories where people have 'teamed up' with the local tradey and worked as his or her 'apprentice' to cut down on the labour costs. This is quite legal as it is no different to them hiring labourers. As long as they oversee what is being done and do any dangerous work themselves it is quite within the law. Sort out insurance stuff before you do this though.
Don't forget that the barter system still works in many instances as well.

You can dodge red tape (quite legally) if you are cunning and flexible.
