Competent Persons Scheme

||

The competent persons scheme was introduced to enable individual tradespeople to self-certify that their work complies with the Building Regulations. This is an alternative to submitting a Building Regulation application for the intended works.

A variety of schemes exist that cover many aspects of the Building Regulations, for example:

  • Replacement windows and doors;
  • Gas appliance, heating and hot water systems;
  • Oil and Solid Fuel combustion appliances;
  • Plumbing, hot water and heating service systems;
  • Electrical, lighting and control systems;
  • Air pressure testing of buildings;
  • Co2 emission rate calculations;
  • Sanitary accommodation and bathrooms.

For details of the various organisations set up to administer the competent persons schemes, please see the Communities and Local Government information page.
