Principal Certifying Authority

Services: Principal Certifying Authority

Prior to commencement of work, the owner must appoint an accredited certifier or council to inspect the building work under construction. The certifier or council is known as the Principal Certifying Authority (PCA). The PCA issues the required certificates including the occupation certificate.

When you appoint My Building Certifier as your PCA a fee is payable for the inspections and the issue of the final occupation certificate.

As your PCA, My Building Certifier is required to inspect various stages of construction so that the work can be assessed for compliance with the original consent or certificate, and on completion, issue the required Occupation Certificate.

The inspections to be undertaken will be listed in your initial certificate. These inspections are called 'Critical Stage Inspections'.

Critical Stage inspections may include:

  • excavations
  • foundations and footings
  • steel reinforcement
  • pool fencing
  • floor joists before laying floor
  • framework
  • floor, wall and ceiling inspections for fire ratings and sound transmission (Class 2-9 buildings only)
  • wet area
  • fire services/construction
  • storm water
  • final inspection

To ensure no downtime for our clients, My Building Certifier undertakes inspections six days per week (by arrangement).
