Approved certification

If you're doing building work on your home you can get certain design and construction work certified by Approved Certifiers.

They'll give you a certificate that says it meets Building Standards. This can be given to your council as part of your application for a Building Warrant.

Find an Approved Certifier by searching the Certification Register.
