BASIX Certificate



A BASIX or Building Sustainability Index certificate is required when submitting a development application in NSW for a new residence or for any alteration and addition, of $50,000 or more to an existing structure.


What is BASIX and How do I get a BASIX certificate?

BASIX is a NSW government initiative to make all residential dwelling types energy and water efficient.

A BASIX certificate is obtained, if the proposed development meets the prescribed targets relating to water consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and thermal performance. Design elements that may help achieve the prescribed targets include onsite detention tanks, rain water tanks, natural lighting, ventilation and others.
