Are you preparing a connection application?

From 1 July 2021 all connection applications will need to be prepared and submitted to us by a Registered Certifier, so we encourage you to start using this process sooner rather than later.

The certifier will:

  • help you navigate the connection approval process and will help prepare, assess, certify and lodge your applications. They know how to get the application right the first time, saving you time and money.
  • speed up the process, meaning you can get your development to market sooner. In most cases we’ll assess and approve your application within 10 working days from receipt.

To get the ball rolling, head to Using a certifier below. You will then be able to choose the best Accredited Entity from our Accreditation Register, for your application.  They’ll provide you with the right type of certifier to handle your application.
