The Department published proposals in a consultation document to revise the conditions of authorisation for Building Regulations competent person schemes in December 2009 with a view to achieving a higher level of compliance with the requirements in the regulations and to give greater consumer protection. The proposals were accompanied by an impact assessment which concluded that there would be a net present benefit over 10 years of £23 million. The consultation document and impact assessment are available at:
The Department is currently amending the proposed conditions in response to comments made in reply to the consultation and further discussions with scheme operators and others, and will amend the impact assessment accordingly. The amended impact assessment will be published later this year.
