65,000 construction jobs to be created with speedier approval of CCC

PETALING JAYA: Some 65,000 jobs will be created in the construction industry following the introduction of a new concept by the government which will enable speedier approval of a certificate for completed buildings.

The “silence implies consent after 28 days” concept will be rolled out 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 9,090 buildings in the peninsula were pending clearance as at May 7 for CCC due to the movement control order.

“The buildings are ready for occupancy but CCC could not be issued pending clearance by local authorities and technical agencies, ” he said.

The creation of 65,000 new jobs is derived from 9,090 multiplied by 23.3% (the value of construction work for non-residential buildings according to the Statistics Department). This is equal to 2,117 projects.

Based on 31 employees per company, this is multiplied by 2,117 projects, which would lead to 65,627 jobs.

CCC is a certificate which provides the final sign-off by the Principal Submitting Person on the construction of a building. It is an assessment undertaken by industry professionals to ensure the building has been made true to its original approved plans by local authorities, safely constructed and fit for occupation.

Malaysian Institute of Architects (PAM) president Datuk Ezumi Harzani Ismail said industry players were in support of the new concept, which would cut down bureaucratic paperwork.

“This is because the completed buildings have been inspected by architects and engineers with all essential services connected and ready for occupation, ” he said.
