What is Certified Self Containment? 

​A self contained vehicle is designed to completely meet the ablutionary and sanitary needs of the occupants (including water for drinking and cooking) for a minimum of three days without requiring any external services or discharging any waste.

Is your vehicle ready to be certified as Self Contained?   

Check the requirements    


A self containment checklist must be signed off by either    

  • a registered plumber, gasfitter or drainlayer

  • a qualified self containment testing officer.

  Testing officer charges may apply.  

 Once your checklist is completed it should be forwarded to an approved issuing authority for your window card / warrant and blue CSC label.

We want to make it easier for you to get certified for self containment. 

Please use this directory to help find businesses and testing officers near you.

Always call ahead and book with the testing officer.
