PRINCIPAL CERTIFYING AUTHORITY (PCA)

Keywords: Inspection Services, Building Inspections, Building Inspection Service

You must appoint a PCA before you commence any building work. The PCA will arrange for a Construction Certificate or Complying Development Certificate to be issued for any work which you wish to carry out. One of the main roles of the PCA is to ensure that all work you wish to carry out is progressing in accordance with the Building Code of Australia and conditions of the Development Approval issued by the local Council (if applicable), and that the structure has been built in accordance with the approved plans. In addition to the approval, the PCA will also inspect the building work at various stages throughout the build. The Professional Certification Group will visit the site during the course of construction and inspect the structure to ensure that compliance is being obtained. Once the building work is completed the PCA will again visit the site and conduct a final inspection to determine if an Interim or Final Occupation Certificate can be issued.
