Becoming an Accredited Entity and/or Registered Certifier allows you to assess and provisionally approve developers’ applications to connect to Unitywater’s non-trunk infrastructure.

Unitywater will not open applications for accreditation in 2022. Instead, we'll concentrate on upskilling and increasing the competency of existing Accredited Entities and Registered Certifiers, as well as improving the Accreditation and Certification System. The current number of Accredited Entities and Registered Certifiers can be found on the Accreditation Register.

The accreditation process

Businesses and individuals with a level of knowledge or practical experience with land development and the processes for connection to water supply and sewerage networks in South East Queensland are invited to apply to become an Accredited Entity, Registered Certifier, or both.

If your application is accepted and training is completed successfully, you will be accredited for 2 years, with renewal subject to satisfactory performance.

We will not be accepting accreditation applications in 2023.
