You will require this permit if you intend to conduct building work. The permit must be obtained from the relevant Agency, generally the local government, prior to work commencing.
You must obtain a Certificate of Design Compliance (CDC) if you intend to construct a building or incidental structure. Your CDC must be in an approved form and you must include a statement from your building surveyor that your building will comply with the applicable standard if your building is completed following your current plans and specifications.
The Building Regulations have more information about other details your CDC must include and what your surveyor must do when signing the building certificate.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
