A Construction Certificate for Building works

A CC verifies that the design of a building complies with the Building Code of Australia (BCA) and meets the requirements of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act and Regulations. Building work cannot commence until a CC has been issued. The CC is issued by a Certifying Authority, which can be either Council or a Private Certifier.

A Construction Certificate for Subdivision Works

If a subdivision requires civil construction works (e.g. roads, footpaths, drainage works) a CC is required. The CC verifies that the detailed design of the works complies with the development consent. Work cannot commence until a CC has been issued. The CC is issued by a Certifying Authority, which can be either Council or a Private Certifier.
