Who We Are
30 Building Consent Authorities (BCAs) across the country are involved in Simpli - an initiative focused on improving regulatory services.
Simpli offers BCAs two ways to make the process simpler and faster - the online application service and the quality management manual. Learn more about benefits for councils.
How to apply
The Online Service
The Simpli Portal allows customers to submit applications online and enables Building Consent Authorities (BCAs) and their customers to manage processes digitally.
It provides a single point for application submissions; and to monitor the status of submissions through their life cycle. The service can be connected to any existing BCA systems.

Quality Management System
The Quality Management System will give Building Consent Authorities (BCAs) a single formalised system that documents processes, procedures, and responsibilities for achieving quality outcomes.
The first stage is a manual that oulines the processes for the building regulations. This ensures all BCAs are using the same processes for managing building consents. The manual is centrally controlled.
