Building and Fire Safety Regulations

The Building Control Regulations 1997 to 2015 require:

  • owners,
  • builders, and
  • registered construction professionals

to demonstrate, through the Statutory Register of Building Control Activity, that the works or building concerned have been designed and constructed in compliance with Building Regulations.

Building Control Regulations apply generally to new buildings and to existing buildings which undergo an extension, a material alteration or a material change of use.
