Only New Projects To Follow
New CFO System
PETALING JAYA, April 13 (Bernama) -- New projects from now on will be
subjected to the Certificate of Compliance and Completion (CCC) system which
replaces the Certificate of Fitness for Occupancy (CFO), Housing and Local
Government Minister Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting said today.
"Projects which have already started or are halfway through will still
follow the old CFO system," he told reporters when asked to elaborate on the
initiatives announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi
regarding steps taken by the government to reduce bureaucracy at the level
of the local authority.
Ong said all relevant officers at his ministry had received the new
guidelines and were ready to implement the new system.
"We will also monitor it," he said, adding that he would elaborate on the
initiatives at a news conference by his ministry tomorrow.
Ong was at the special news conference when Abdullah announced that the
"one-stop centre" concept practised by some local authorities formed the
main thrust of improvements that would be made in the public delivery system
at that level.
Abdullah, in his announcement, said the replacement of the CFO by the CCC
for the handing over of completed structures to buyers of buildings and the
provision for a commissioner of buildings were also steps in the right
direction to resolve problems between buyers and developers.
