Introduction Introduction

CCC replaces the Certificate of Fitness for Occupation (CFO) issued by Local Authorities for projects approved prior to April 2007. Due to government policy to encourage self-regulation by professionals, the Street, Drainage and Building Act (Amendment) 2007 (Act A1286) was amended to stipulate that a Principal Submitting Person must sign a certificate called Certificate of Completion and Compliance(CCC) (Form F) for him to confirm that the project for which he had obtained Building Plans approval from a Local Authority, is completed and has met all statutory requirements with regards to health and safety aspects and is ready to be occupied with all essential utilities services connected. The Principal Submitting Person can only be either a Professional Architect or a Professional Engineer with Practising Certificate (PEPC) depending on the type of building involved. Copies of the CCC issued to the Owner must be submitted to BEM and the Local Authority within 14 days of issuance together with all 21 supporting forms (Form G1 -21) signed by the relevant Submitting Person of various Professions / Engineering Disciplines.
