Code compliance certificates

A Code Compliance Certificate (CCC) verifies that the building work complies with the building consent. It is an important document, and should be retained for future reference.

A code compliance certificate (CCC) is a formal statement confirming that we are satisfied on reasonable grounds that all building work has been completed in accordance with the building consent we issued for your project. Without a CCC, you may face difficulties when trying to buy, sell or insure a property.

You should apply for a CCC as soon as all consented building work has been completed (and preferably when all inspections have been passed).

Your application must include any outstanding documentation, for example; as-built drainage plans, pressure test certificates or electrical certificates.  

All documentation must be received before the final inspection can be booked.
