Seminar Aim

The seminar will bring together the key decision makers involved in developing the new building regulations as well as stakeholders from the relevant professional bodies and legal and insurance experts to present a clear and comprehensive explanation of the new regulations and their implications from a technical, legal and practical point-of-view.

Seminar Overview

Following the development boom of the last decade and the well-publicised problems of Priory Hall and housing estates destroyed by pyrite, it became clear to all that the existing Building Control system was inadequate and required an overhaul.
After extensive consultation with stakeholders, a record number of submissions and further engagement with the relevant professional bodies, the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government, Phil Hogan, published the Building Control Amendment Regulations 2013 at the beginning of April 2013.
Whilst the publication of “the new building regs” was welcomed by all building industry stakeholders, questions remain concerning the key issues of responsibility, certification, control, inspection and competence.
