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.

I engaged Melbourne Civil & Structural Engineers to carry out an inspection of my house for a structural and crack inspection. Adam completed a thorough inspection of the property and took his time to explain the key issues impacting the movement of the foundation resulting in some cracks, a strategy to mitigate future movement, repairs that required rectification including the most important areas to address upfront, approximate costs to complete the repairs/renovations (trade by trade breakdown) whilst also recommending a reputable builder. The option to choose between obtaining either verbal advice or verbal advice and a detailed report is a flexible option from a cost perspective, Adam was extremely professional and clear in presenting logical solutions that was easy to understand allowing me to take notes. After the inspection i had a clear understanding of the exact steps to follow and costs involved (and also how to avoid unnecessary costs) which provided me with confidence. I would highly recommend Adam and Melbourne Civil & Structural Engineers based on experience, knowledge, professionalism and outstanding value for service.
