The resources below will assist registered design and building practitioners to meet their obligations under the legislation in regard to Class 2 residential buildings.

NSW Government has introduced a range of building reforms to improve compliance and quality control for Class 2 buildings across NSW.

The Department of Planning and Environment has collaborated with the Office of the NSW Building Commissioner to enhance the digital services on the NSW Planning Portal in support of these reforms.

The two key pieces of legislation underpinning the building reforms are the Residential Apartment Buildings Act 2020 and the Design and Building Practitioners Act 2021. This has resulted in changes to the post-consent certificate services within the NSW Planning Portal, in particular the digital workflow for applying for a Construction Certificate or a Complying Development Certificate.

The resources below will provide detailed steps for what is required for registered design and building practitioners to meet their obligations under the two Acts mentioned above.

This is based on whether the proposed work has received approval for a Development Application, Construction Certificate or a Complying Development Certificate, or if the proposed work does not require building approval.
