Building control

Building Control ensures that building work is carried out to a high standard in the interest of the health, safety and welfare of the occupiers, users and the public at large. Building Control is exercised under the Building Act and through the application of the Building Regulations, which have been approved by Parliament. The Building Regulations define what is meant by ‘building work’, set out the minimum standards of design and construction which should apply to categories of building work and establish the procedures for ensuring that building work meets these standards.
