Compliance Certificates are certificates that are issued for particular parts of building work. For instance, a Compliance Certificate can be issued by an accredited engineer on footing construction to the effect that the footings are structurally adequate.

Compliance Certificates can also be issued certifying that conditions of consent have been complied with.

What is Accredited Certifier, Principal Certifying Authority (PCA)?
Accredited Certifier is responsible for issuing the Construction Certificate. This involves assessing the submitted information and supplying the approval to start building.

The Principal Certifying Authority (PCA) is responsible for inspecting building work during the construction phase of development. This is to ensure that the work is consistent with the development consent and construction certificate and to enable the issuing of an occupation certificate when the work is complete.
