Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

Part II of the Building Act 1984 (“The 1984 Act”) makes provision for private sector building control through Approved Inspectors. Part II provides for the giving of initial notices by an Approved Inspector which if accepted by the relevant local authority removes the work to which the notice relates from supervision by the authority. Such a notice may be cancelled or withdrawn but may not be amended.

This Order provides for the amendment of an initial notice by an amendment notice.

This Order also amends Part II of the principal Act by relieving an Approved Inspector from the burden of having to serve a copy of a final certificate under section 51 on the person by whom the work was carried out.
