What is a Code Compliance Certificate?
A Code Compliance Certificate is a formal statement issued under Section 95 of the Building Act 2004, that building work carried out under a building consent complies with that building consent.
The Code Compliance Certificate must be issued if the BCA is satisfied on reasonable grounds that the building work complies with the building consent under Section 94 of the Building Act 2004.
Lack of a Code Compliance Certificate may cause issues with the bank releasing final builder payments, being able to increase insurance cover, or being able to sell your house.
Building owners, occupiers or controllers need to ensure any building work affecting public premises has a code compliance certificate, certificate for public use or certificate of acceptance before the part of the premises affected by the building work is used by members of the public.
