Building Regulations (Amendment) Act (Northern Ireland) 2009


The Department conducted two public consultations on the content of the Act, firstly between January and May 2004 on the existing scope of the building regulations framework, and then from July to November 2005, on a range of policy proposals. Approximately 10% of consultees responded and were broadly supportive of the current framework and the policy changes proposed.

The Department also ran two stakeholder workshops for representatives from both district councils and the local construction industry, consulted with the Northern Ireland Building Regulations Advisory Committee (NIBRAC) and, as part of a series of public seminars on amendments to the Building Regulations, made presentations on these proposals.
