Engaging building industry professionals

Private certifiers

Private certifiers can perform the same duties as councils in relation to building rules assessment and limited planning consent. These include:

  • assessing proposed developments against the building rules
  • assessing proposed residential code developments
  • assigning classifications
  • granting building rules consents
  • imposing conditions under which the building work must be constructed
  • issuing essential safety provisions
  • issuing certificates of occupancy.

All private certifiers must be registered and follow a code of practice.

Conditions of registration

There may be conditions to a registration that limit the type of work a certifier is allowed to undertake. You should ask to see confirmation of their registration which shows any conditions that may apply.

Condition A

The certifier may not certify or grant consent on building work where there is a variance from the building rules.

Condition B

The certifier may only certify or grant consent for buildings that have a maximum of three storeys and a floor area of less than 2,000 square metres.

Condition C

The certifier may only undertake an assessment of residential code developments and the granting of development plan consents under Section 33(1)(a) of the Development Act 1993 in relation to those developments.

Condition D

The certifier may only issue building rules consents for building work associated with new or altered swimming pool safety barriers. Building rules consents for swimming pools can only be granted when a certificate from an appropriate independent technical expert has been obtained.
