Building Regulations. Approved Inspectors and Approved Persons

In the Building Act 1984 there came into force legislation which would allow private persons to act either as Approved Inspectors or Approved Persons. This had resulted from the Government’s intention to make building control more open to competition and to allow professionals to be involved in certifying not only their own work, but also that of others. The legislation, which was carried further by the coming into force of the Building (Approved Inspector, etc.) Regulations 1985, set down certain of the details which would be required to be satisfied which included, among other things, the matter of insurance. It was principally on that one point that the scheme foundered from l985 until the latter part of last year. B.A. Cox
