The Act - an Overview

Part 2: Approval of Construction Work Etc.

Section 22:  Imposition of continuing requirements by verifiers

68.Section 22 provides for a verifier to impose continuing requirements where the verifier grants or makes an amendment to a building warrant, or accepts a completion certificate for work which did not have a necessary building warrant. As with section 2, which permits continuing requirements to be imposed by building regulations, the purpose of imposing the requirements is to secure that the purposes of building regulations are not frustrated. Where verifiers consider it necessary to impose such requirements for this purpose, they must do so. Any such requirements imposed under this section must state the provision of building regulations to which they relate.
