Occupation Certificates

An Occupation Certificate certifies that a building is suitable and safe to be occupied in line with the requirements established by The Building Code of Australia (BCA).  

Prior to a new building being occupied, the Principal Certifying Authority (PCA) must consider the health, safety and amenity of future occupants of the building. The PCA can be a Council or a private sector Accredited Certifier.

The Occupation Certificate Application Form must be completed and submitted to Council before completion of the work and prior to occupation of the building.
