A few details: 

Who controls the constructions?

In Tunisia, the technical control of constructions is carried out by the certifying bodies approved by the TUNAC. Apave Tunisia is the only office accredited for the technical control of constructions in Tunisia. 

When is a technical control mandatory? 

The technical control is mandatory for new constructions, constructions that have been the subject of a declaration of work, constructions that have been the subject of a request for a building permit and constructions that have been the subject of a request for authorization of work. Apave Tunisie assists you in all these procedures.

When can the control of construction rules take place?

The technical control of constructions must take place before any building, part of a building or any other work assigned to a use other than that for which it was built. Our experts establish the Initial Technical Inspection Report (ITR) to the Final Technical Inspection Report (FTIR), as an approved certifying body, in order to verify the state of conservation of a building and to assess the risks incurred by the users.
