Certification process

EDQ has streamlined the operational works process to promote the more efficient delivery of land development within a Priority Development Area (PDA).

The Certification Procedures Manual (CPM) ( 353.3 KB) sets out certain performance-based processes for the design, construction and delivery of infrastructure requiring assessment under a condition of a PDA development approval.

The process outlined in the manual does not determine the standards to be met by development as the PDA development conditions will set out these standards.

You will need to read and apply the processes in the manual if your approval calls up EDQ’s certification process (effective 14 April 2020).

Benefits of the certification process:

  • innovation and improved outcomes
  • reduction in approval timeframes
  • earlier commencement of construction
  • potential reduction in holding costs.
