We issue Construction Certificates, which are a type of development certificate issued under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.
A Construction Certificate is "a certificate to the effect that the building work completed in accordance with specified plans and specifications or standards will comply with the requirements of the regulations".
Once a development consent has been issued by a local Council, a Construction Certificate must be obtained prior to commencing any building work.
Construction Certificates can only be issued by a private Registered Certifier, or by a local Council.
As private Registered Certifiers, we offer a fast and reliable alternative to using your local Council.
A Construction Certificate verifies that:
After a Construction Certificate has been issued, a Principal Certifier (PC) must be appointed.
At least two days’ written notice must be provided to Council and the Principal Certifier, before commencing building works.
NSW Department of Planning and Environment have published a Guide to the Development Application Process.
Please note that all Construction Certificate applications are required to be submitted to us through the NSW Planning Portal.
