Why do you need BC(A)R Ancillary Assigned Certifier services?

The Irish Building Control System looks to ensure the safety of all people and is based on the Building Control Acts 1990 – 2014. From this there is a set of legal requirements, The Building Regulations 1997-2017, formed for the design and construction of new buildings and alterations and change of use of existing buildings.

In 2014, new laws were implemented under The Building Control Amendments Regulation (BCAR). These laws included the use of a ‘Builder’ to carry out work under the regulations and the use of a competent person or ‘Assigned Certifier’ in conjunction with ‘Ancillary Assigned Certifiers’ to inspect the work to ensure compliance, as well as introducing a Certificate of Compliance upon project completion.

Warringtonfire is able to use its expertise and offer the BC(A)R Ancillary Assigned Certifier service. In this role, we as the Ancillary Assigned Certifier for Parts B and M of the Building Regulations will co-ordinate the design, inspection and certification of the relevant works from design to completion.
