A new concept, called the ‘silence implies consent after 28 days’, will be introduced by the Government for obtaining the Certificate of Completion and Compliance (CCC) for completed buildings.

Malaysia Productivity Corporation (MPC) Director General, Datuk Abdul Latif Abu Seman said the construction industry highlighted that due to the Movement Control Order (MCO), 9,090 buildings are pending clearance as at 7 May 2020 excluding Sabah and Sarawak, by local authorities and technical agencies on the CCC via MyMudah.

“With this improvement, we could create 65,000 job opportunities in the construction industry and support the economic recovery,” he said after presenting the recommendations at the Economic Action Council Meeting chaired by Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

The CCC is a certificate which provides final sign-off by Principal Submitting Person on construction of a building.

It is an assessment undertaken by industry professionals to ensure that the building has been made true to its original approved plans by local Authority, safely constructed and that fit for occupation.
