Building Structural Stability Certificate

Structural stability certificate is a certificate that states that a building has followed all the rules and regulations of a construction and is stable and fit for occupation. It also states that the building complies with the BIS codes and thus is safe to live in.

Structural stability certificate is a compulsory document required in municipalities’ bylaws of many states issued by a structural engineer after a thorough assessment of structure and its components. Authority of issuer & validity of structural stability certificate varies from region to region however few things remain common throughout the industry. Although issuing the certificate is at discretion of structural engineer yet he isn’t supposed to subjectively certify a structure as stable. A structural engineer is supposed to inspect the structural drawings, verify the plans with actual construction and note the observations of non-compliance or damages in building (If any). It is therefore, a structural audit report assist the certificate issuer in understanding the condition and composition of building

Structural stability certificate is a document that provides evidence of the structural integrity of a building. It is issued by an engineer, who will determine whether or not a building has been maintained properly and can be expected to continue to withstand the forces that it was designed to handle without breaking.

The certificate is based on the design criteria for the particular type of structure being evaluated. It will describe how much force the structure can take before it will break or collapse due to being over-stressed. This is done by comparing how much force was applied during its construction with how much force it can withstand as it ages.

Who is authorized to certify?

A chartered structural engineer, who is on the panel of personal practising engineers weaknesses, as well as seismic compliances. The engineer is also required to check if the fire and health safety features are in place and the structure is safe for the surrounding buildings and the public. They submit the report to the various civic bodies like the public works department, fire department, etc. The municipal corporation then ascertains that all the safety compliances are in order and only when it’s convinced that the built structure is safe for occupation, the authority issues the Structure Stability Certificate. The certificate also states that the developer has executed a detailed soil test and that the structure is fit for occupancy. It is another important and mandatory document that a buyer has to procure from the developer prior to moving into the flat.
