Certificates of Compliance

A Certificate of Compliance is normally provided to the home owner upon completion or purchase of a property. It is prepared by a qualified professional experienced in the construction industry. It certifies that the building has been completed in accordance with the planning permission granted and the various relevant sections of the Building Regulations.

Compliance with the Building Regulations is normally ensured by adhering to  guidance set out in Technical Guidance Documents Parts. These guidance documents are regularly updated to introduce as required better standards in the industry.

Normally a Certificate of Compliance is carried out following a number of site inspections through the building process. This affords the supervising Engineer or Architect the opportunity to inspect important aspects of the work while it is still visible. An example of this might be the inspection of cavity wall insulation or damp proof membranes.
