About building confirmation application

What is architectural confirmation application

When we build building or public establishment, confirmation application by Building Standard Act is necessary. The Building Standards Law stipulates standards for ensuring the safety and health of buildings and standards for ensuring the safety and environment of urban areas. Niseko Town, confirmation applications are required for sub-city planning areas and urban areas. In other areas, please note that a confirmation application is required depending on the building.
