http://lnkd.in/-aZQwY | RIAI WELCOMES AMENDED BUILDING CONTROL REGULATIONS BUT CAUTIONS THAT MORE NEEDS TO BE DONE TO ENSURE BUILDING STANDARDS AND CONSUMER PROTECTION | Twelve month implementation period gives Government and Local Authorities time to get Building Control inspection systems operating effectively | Monies from Local Property Tax should be ring-fenced for building control system | Registration of builders must be part of the new system |
The PM Surveyors, Land Surveyors and Quantity Surveyors are not eligible, as the Regulations relate only to Part 3 (Architects) and Part 5 (Building Surveyors) of the BCA. Quantity Surveyors are Part 4, and the other titles are not protected. Chartered Engineers come under their own Act.
Quantity Surveyors were included at the time of the public consultation but were removed thereafter.
