Building Regulations Compliance 

Compliance with the Building Regulations in England and Wales is governed by CLG and in Scotland by SBS - ensure compliance by using an NICEIC-registered contractor to undertake work covered by Building Regulations.

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.
