Private Certification

Private certification allows a private building surveying contractor to certify the design of a building for its compliance with Applicable Building Standards.

Private certification reduces approval times, enables flexibility in the building approval process where an independent building surveyor may determine the application and issue a Certificate of Design Compliance.

The Certificate of Design compliance forms part of your application documentation. By obtaining this Certificate before you lodge for your Building Permit for a building, the Permit Issuing Authority has 10 business days to determine the application.

It is important to note the Certificate of Design Compliance does not assess or certify planning policy or Residential Design Code compliance of the building, only NCC and Building Standard compliance.

All other matters related to the approval must be addressed and complied with. The Permit Authority can still request additional information on a Certified Application if they identify issues of non-compliance or items that have not met their local requirements.
