Private Certifiers

Private Certifiers have authority under the Building Professionals Act to issue Part 4A certificates.

Part 4A certificates include construction certificates, complying development certificates and occupation certificates.

Private Certification commenced in NSW in 1999 when the NSW Government sought to address a need for competition in the building approval system. The monopoly was previously held by the local council.

A Private Certifier in NSW must obtain accreditation under the Building Professionals Board Accreditation Scheme to be authorised to issue building approvals and occupation certificates. 

Greenfield Certifiers hold Level A1 Accreditation which allows us to issue construction certificates, complying development certificates and occupation certificates for all class of buildings including houses, residential flat buildings, offices, shops, health care buildings, factories, schools etc.

A Private Certifier can issue a construction certificate (building approval) or complying development certificate after being satisfied that the application complies with relevant criteria listed in the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act & Regulations.
