How building work is certified

A code compliance certificate is a formal statement that building work carried out under a building consent complies with that building consent.

Code compliance certificate

A code compliance certificate is the final sign-off in completing consented building work.

Submitting construction documentation

Submit your construction documents as the build progresses for faster code compliance processing.

Compliance schedule

Issued by the Council if your building contains specified systems. The compliance schedule will contain the details of how these specified systems are to be inspected and maintained so they operate effectively for the life of the building.

Certificate for public use

Issued by the Council where it is satisfied your premises are safe for members of the public to use before a code compliance certificate is issued.

Certificate of acceptance

Issued by the Council detailing the level to which unconsented building work complies with the building code.

Unconsented or unapproved building work

Discuss with us building work that has been carried out without a building consent so you can consider your options to comply with section 40 of the Building Act 2004.
