Gaining approvals to connect your development to our water and sewerage network can be a complex and involved process, involving multiple professionals.

We’ve made the process much faster and more manageable by training and accrediting a large pool of Registered Certifiers who can assist you with each stage of the approval process.

They help prepare, assess and submit connection applications (Certification Packages) to Unitywater on your behalf. We assess these Certification Packages and issue a Decision Notice within 10 days of receipt, to help get your property to market quicker.

Our Accreditation Register lists an extensive range of Registered Certifiers to choose from, or you can find out more about Using a certifier here.
