In determining compliance Act Building Control will always take into account all the relevant facts, specific project issues and technical information available before concluding what is reasonable in the circumstances.

Approved Inspectors Regulation

Approved Inspectors are private sector companies who have been approved by the government to provide building control services.  Approved Inspectors are governed by the Building Act and related regulations and government issued procedural guidance. As a result the general format of building control services is the same for Approved Inspectors and Local Authority Building Control. Approved Inspectors functions are primarily governed by the Building Act and the Approved Inspectors etc. Regulations. This legal framework was first developed in the 1984 Building Act, and the first Approved Inspector to be approved and registered was the NHBC in 1985. Since 1997 the Approved Inspectors etc. Regulations were further developed and additional approved inspectors have been registered.
