A Certificate of Compliance is a document that is regulated by the Victorian Building Authority and is referred to as "Regulation 1507: Certificate of Compliance – Design".
The Victorian Building Authority administers Victoria’s building legislation system. The document is a statement made by the engineer to the Building Surveyor that all structural design works have been carried out in accordance with the Building Act 1993, the Building Regulations 2006, the Building Code of Australia and the relevant Australian Standards.
In order to complete your Building Permit application, your Building Surveyor may request a Certificate of Compliance from an engineer pertaining to your proposed development. This document gives you and your Building Surveyor confidence that all design work has been completed by us to the required standards as set by the Victorian Building Authority At Melbourne Civil & Structural Engineers, we have qualified, experienced and licensed Engineers to check the design independently and provide a Certificate of Compliance.

We approached MCS Engineers to investigate the cracked walls and brickwork at our home. A couple of builders and underpinners had already inspected the damages and provided me with their quotations to repair the damages and underpin the building. A Geotechnical Engineer had also recommended underpinning. Adam from MCS Engineers attended the property and carried out an extremely thorough investigation of the damages which no one else did, he also examined the building permits and engineering reports and found a series of issues and underlying causes of the damage. He got to the bottom of the issue and found the water leaks that were causing the damages. Had we not engaged MCS to investigate, we could have ended up spending thousands of dollars for the repairs and could have ended up with the same issue again as the underlying causes were not identified. Adam was very professional and he also took the time to explain everything in detail in a language that someone with no engineering/ building background could understand and recommended the most appropriate remedial action required. The fee for the investigation was money well spent as it saved us thousands in repairs that could have resulted in the same issue a few months down the track. It goes to show the importance of professionals and the expertise they carry and will definitely use MCS in the future and highly recommend them.Inzi - WANTIRNA - VIC
