Building regulations compliance

 If you own a home or rental property, you are legally responsible for compliance with the Building Regulations.

The Building Regulations apply to building work in England and Wales and set standards for the design and construction of buildings to ensure the health and safety of people in or around those buildings.  Equivalent Regulations apply in Scotland.

NICEIC enables householders and landlords to find reputable contractors that are registered to certify their own work to the relevant Building Regulations.
