A Construction Certificate verifies that a building project will achieve the terms of the NCC (Building Code of Australia) and any relevant Australian Standards and certifies that the construction plans, and specifications are consistent with the development consent stamped approved plans and will comply with the conditions of the development consent.

A Construction Certificate is required to be obtained after a development application has been approved and prior to the commencement of any building work.

A Principal Certifier (PC) is also required to be appointed in accordance with the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, before commencement of any building works. When lodging your Construction Certificate, you will need to nominate your appointed Principal Certifier.

All Construction Certificate applications must be lodged with Council electronically via the NSW Planning Portal.
