You will require this certificate if you intend to occupy a building after it has been constructed or altered. The purpose of this certificate is to demonstrate that the building wholly or substantially meets all relevant standards and is safe to be occupied.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
A licence defines the need to obtain recognition / certification and registration to undertake a certain business activity.
Each application must be accompanied by:
- A certificate of completion
- A completed application form
- A statement of the current or intended use of the building
- A copy of the buildings current plans
- The nominated fee.
The building will need to be certified by a licensed building surveyor (or principal building surveyor if the building is over three storeys or 2000 square metres). Once work on your building has been competed to the satisfaction of your building certifier, they will issue you with a certificate of completion. Please consult the Contact Officer for more information regarding eligibility requirements.
