3. Book the inspections
A free-standing wood burner needs one inspection, after it's installed but before you use it.
An inbuilt wood burner needs two inspections:
- before fitting the fire box
- after it's installed but before you use it.
The fee you paid for your building consent included an hour for each inspection required. If the inspector needs more time, you will receive an invoice that must be paid before your code compliance certificate is issued.
4. Apply for your code compliance certificate
Once the work has passed its final inspection, you need to apply for a code compliance certificate.
This certifies that the work is safe and complies with the building consent.
Applying for your code compliance certificate
The Building Compliance and Consents team is available Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm.
