A guide to compliance
Always ensure that your supporting documents are not outdated or invalid. A certified copy must always have an original stamp and signature of the commissioner of oaths.
To enable the cidb to process applications timeously, please ensure that your application is accompanied by all documents required for the specific grade for which you are applying and the correct particulars are provided.
How long does it take to get registered?
By law the cidb must take no more than 21 working days to process a registration application for Grades 2 to 9. This period only applies to applications that are complete and comply with all the registration requirements for the grade being applied for.
‘Complete’ means that the contractor has furnished the cidb with all documents required to process an application, as well as proof that the applicable fees have been paid. An application is compliant when it meets all the documentary requirements to qualify for assessment in the grade that the contractor is applying for.
Where an application is non-compliant the law allows the cidb to give the contractor a maximum of 60 days to furnish the outstanding documentation. If the contractor fails to supply the required information within the 60 day grace period the cidb will proceed to assess the application and assign a grade on the basis of the information at its disposal.
