CCC Ensures Full Accountability, Says Ong
14/04/2007 Bernama

KUALA LUMPUR, April 13 (Bernama) -- The parties that issue the Certificate of Compliance and Completion (CCC) for building projects will be held accountable for its safety forever, said Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting.

He said this was because the trust had been placed in the issuing parties who are from professional groups like architects and engineers unlike previously under the Certificate of Fitness for Occupation (CFO) system that was handled by local authorities.

"The people who put down their signatures on the CCCs know what is required of them and any false representation will lead to their professionalism being questioned," he said when interviewed by Malaysian National News Agency (BERNAMA) Chairman Datuk Annuar Zaini in the 60 Minutes With a Minister programme on the RTM1 television channel tonight.

Ong said more than one person will be responsible under the CCC system, which requires 21 forms to be processed for each part of the building process.

"For example, when an engineer has completed a structure, the architect will have to verify that it is to specifications and countersign the appropriate forms. The same will apply for the other aspects of a building like piping, wiring and others."

"Thus, for every stage of the building, there will people responsible for it and the professional groups will have to make the appropriate verifications until all the 21 forms are completed," he said.

Ong said the CCC system provided better guarantees compared to the previous one.

However, he said, the local authorities still reserved the right to inspect the buildings to ascertain that they are safe.

The Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi today when announcing the steps to be taken to improve the delivery system of local authorities said the CCC would help resolve many of the problems that were faced under the CFO system.

He also said that a commissioner of buildings post would be created to look into problems faced by buyers of high rise units.
