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.

Without a code compliance certificate (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 oustanding documentation, for example the Memorandum (Records of building work) or a Notice of Owner-builder form.

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

How to apply

To apply for your Code Compliance Certificate:

For consents prior to 2014, please submit a paper code compliance application form and provide the supporting document.
