Approved Persons for Certifying Structural Plans - a Progress Report

As a result of the form in The Structural Engineer and the ICE Group Focus, some 2000 members have indicated their interest in the approved persons scheme. From soundings taken, it appears that clients will be expecting designers to be able to self-certify structural plans within the limits laid down in the Building (Approved Persons, etc.) Regulations 1985, i.e. up to four storeys and public assembly buildings with spans up to 9m. Obviously, clients see commercial advantages in self-certifying as opposed to going through local authority control.
