NCA Renewal Portal

The National Construction Authority, founded under the Act No. 41 of 2011, is a government agency that oversees all areas of the Kenyan construction industry – including the registration of contractors to ensure that only competent builders are allowed to work in the country.

Section 15 of the NCA Act states that no builder shall conduct the business of a contractor in Kenya without an annual clearance certificate from the Authority.

Here is the procedure for NCA renewal of licence.

How to renew your NCA Certificate

1. Visit the NCA website: www.nca.go.ke

2. Click on the ‘Portals’ tab and then click on ‘Renewal of Contractors’, which will take you to the ‘Renewal of Practicing License’ – the NCA portal for licence renewal.

3. Log into your account with your ID/Passport Number and Password.

Those who do not have an account can create one by clicking on ‘Register’ and filling in the requested information in each field.

4. Once inside the portal, click on the ‘Renewals’ tab and then click on ‘Renewal of Practicing License’. Enter your registration number and then click on ‘Load Licences’.

Click on ‘Proceed’ and fill in the required information, upload all the required documents (see below) and then click submit.

5. Once you submit the online renewal application, an invoice will be sent to your email address. The invoice will indicate the NCA renewal fees and the mode of payment.

A message will also be sent to the mobile number used during the registration.

Editor’s Note: The NCA renewal fees range between Sh2,500 and Sh30,000.

6. After making your payment, you will then be required to key in the bank slip or M-Pesa transaction number.

7. Once this step is completed and verified, the NCA Certificate and Annual Practicing License will be generated automatically into your online account.
