Statutory Control of Construction

The new regulations, extensively discussed by the industry and masterminded by the Department of Environment, are now reaching the final stage of their review. They cover both the requirements of the Building Regulations and proposed methods of control. The review was started by a study in depth, by the Department and its consultants. This led to discussions and discussion drafts, prepared by the Department, which have gradually hardened into Acts of Parliament and of Statutory Instruments to go before Parliament. Inevitably, this process brings compromise between the ideals of the profession and what Parliament believes to be necessary to safeguard the public. Also it is still incomplete and includes recommendations that engineers may wish to see changed. S.B. Tietz
