Final Code of Compliance
A Code Compliance Certificate ends the process and is a Certificate issued by Council if it is satisfied on reasonable grounds that the building work complies with the building consent.
When all the work under the building consent has been completed apply for a Code Compliance Certificate using the on-line form under Submit It for consents numbered 171000 upwards, and use the form below, in related documents, for all older consents.
The Building Act 2004 requires Council to decide whether to issue the Code Compliance Certificate (if not suspended for further information) within 20 working days after receipt of the application or, if there has been no application, 2 years after the building consent was granted.
It is Council practice to send a reminder letter out prior to the end of the 2 year period and it should be noted that you may apply to the Council for an extension of time to complete the work. A final inspection of the work will also be carried out to ensure it complies with the building consent. Any additional cost incurred by the Council over and above that paid at the time of issue of the building consent or any outstanding development contributions are payable prior to the issue of the Code Compliance Certificate.
Commercial/Industrial Only - If the building contains specified systems then a Compliance Schedule including:
(a) a description of all specified systems for the building and the performance standards for each of them; and
(b) the proposed inspection, maintenance, and reporting procedures for the specified systems
will be issued with the Code Compliance Certificate.
