A Certificate of Building Compliance (or otherwise known as a CBC or BA18) is the formal certification from a registered building surveyor that an existing building or structure satisfies the applicable building standards. A CBC generally will include drawings, technical documents in addition to an inspection of the building by the building surveyor and other industry professionals providing certifications for services & equipment.
The CBC is issued for a variety of different reasons including but not limited to the below;
- Certification of unauthorised works.
- Certification of a built strata.
- Change of building use or classification
- Temporary modification of an occupancy permit
A Certificate of Building Compliance for unauthorised works or certification of a building requiring an Occupancy Permit can only be issued by a registered private building surveyor contractor. A council will not accept a BA13 Application for Building Approval Certificate or BA9 Application for Occupancy Permit without this certificate.
