This section of our website will guide you through the steps required to apply for a Certificate of Acceptance (CoA). A CoA certifies that an infrastructure asset - water supply or wastewater - built under Auckland Council Engineering Planning Approval (EPA) meets Council requirements and our code of practice. All water and wastewater infrastructure assets constructed and connected under an Engineering Planning Approval (EPA) must follow our CoA process.
