About Us

The Independent Checking Unit (ICU) works directly under the Office of the Permanent Secretary for Transport and Housing (Housing). Under the delegated authority from the Building Authority (i.e. the Director of Buildings), the ICU exercises statutory building control to properties developed by the Hong Kong Housing Authority (HA) that have been sold or divested, in accordance with the Buildings Ordinance (BO) and the policies and guidelines of the Building Authority (BA). The ICU also exercises administrative building control to the HA’s new development works and existing buildings in line with the BO and the BA’s policies and guidelines.

If you search for information on properties that are not included in the above building types, e.g. other private buildings not developed or owned by the HA, you may access more information on the website of the Buildings Department.
