DESIGN + ASSIGNED CERTIFICATION
In March 2014 the Government introduced new Building Control (Amendment) Regulations, BC(A)R, that set out new procedures for the control of building activity.
The regulations apply to most building works including new houses, house extensions over 40m², and any building works which require a fire safety certificate.
If your project falls under the BC(A)R regulations you must appoint a Design + Assigned Certifier. As we are on the Building Surveyors Register we can undertake these roles on your behalf.
For more information as to whether your project falls under the BC(A)R regulations please click on our FAQ section.
Since the 1st Sept 2015 Domestic clients have an option to “opt-out” of the BC(A)R but still have to prove they comply with the building regulations. For more information on this option click here
