Building Standards and Public Safety has the following responsibilities:
The Building Regulations are mandatory, but the choice of how to comply with them lies with the building owner.
If the guidance in the Technical Handbooks is followed in full then this should indicate that the building regulations have been complied with.
Early consultation with the Service on any of these matters is recommended as this can reduce possible difficulties later in the processes.
If you wish to make an appointment, visit our office, or make a comment or complaint about the service, please contact us by any of the methods detailed in the 'Contact Us' Section.
