When your building project is
complete, you will need to apply for a Code Compliance Certificate. This
certificate means the building work complies with the Building Code and the building consent. A fee is charged for issuing the Code Compliance
When you apply for a Code Compliance
Certificate you need to give names and contact details for all people involved
in your project - e.g. builders, plumbers, engineers. If the project
involved restricted building work, the licensed building practitioner must
supply a ‘Memorandum from Licensed Building Practitioner: Record of building
work’ on completion of the work to both the owner and Council. This form can be
downloaded from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, Building
and Housing Group website www.business.govt.nz/lbp.
You may also be required to supply
supporting documentation such as Energy Work Certificates or a PS4 (Engineer’s
producer statement) before the certificate can be issued.
Your application will be processed within 20 days of a successful final inspection, unless additional information or inspections are required. As with the Building Consent, the 20-day clock will be paused when we request any additional information and will be restarted once we receive all the requested information.
We may be unable to issue the
certificate if any of the required inspections have been missed or the required
producer statements cannot be provided. Without a Code Compliance
Certificate you may experience difficulties insuring your property or selling
it in the future.
Long delays between when the building
work is completed and when the certificate is applied for can cause
complications, delays, additional fees and other unnecessary expenses for home
In some circumstances we may refuse
to issue a Code Compliance Certificate, for example if we are unable to
determine whether the building work has been completed in accordance with the
Building Code or where you fail to supply the required documentation.
If your Code Compliance Certificate
is refused, you have a right of appeal against our decision by applying to the
Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment for a determination under
section 177 of the Building Act 2004.
