Submission requirements

There is no need for Qualified Person (QP) to submit his declaration and GM score for these projects. Instead, the QP should:

  • Upon completion of building works, inform BCA early to initiate the Green Mark verification audit so as to facilitate the temporary occupation permit (TOP) and certificate of statutory completion (CSC) process
  • Submit the relevant clearance showing that the project has been verified and met the prescribed Green Mark Certification rating, along with the application for TOP or CSC 

Compliance standards

Compliance with the respective certification standards will be based on the tender award letter issued by URA to the successful developer under the Government Land Sales (GLS) programmefor the selected strategic areas, as stated in the table below.
