Building (Scotland) Act 2003

Schedule 2 (introduced by section 7): Verifiers and certifiers

148.Paragraphs 1 to 3make provision in connection with the appointment and removal of verifiers and certifiers, and the terms of their appointment. Paragraph 4provides that certifiers who are entitled to exercise such functions by virtue of membership of an approved scheme are subject to various limitations. Paragraph 5places a duty on the Scottish Ministers to appoint a successor verifier where a verifier’s appointment has been terminated, and for the successor verifier to take over the unfinished matters in relation to building warrants and completion certificates which the previous verifier had been dealing with. Paragraphs 6 to 10 make provision to avoid conflict of interest, either where a verifier is also a certifier or where a verifier has an interest in a building. Paragraph 11 defines what an “interest” means for the purposes of this schedule.
