Occupation Certificate - New South Wales

Description

You will require this certificate if you intend to occupy or use a new building or change the use of an existing building. The Building Code of Australia (chapters one and two of the National Construction Code) detail what uses are permitted for different classes of building.

Occupation Certificates can be issued as an interim certificate or final certificate and can be issued for the whole or any part of a building.

  • To commence a new use of part of an existing building.

A final occupation certificate authorises a person to commence occupation or use of a new building, or to commence a new use of an existing building.
