Householder Guidance Leaflet No. 3 Competent Person Schemes

This leaflet is one of a series produced by the Hertfordshire Building Control Technical Forum


When you carry out certain types of building work, you are required to ensure that the work is carried out in accordance with the Building Regulations 2010. This would require that you submit an application to your Local Authority Building Control Department for assessment of your project and inspection of the works on site. However as an alternative and to provide householder’s with more choice, the Government has created Competent Person Schemes for certain trades. An individual or company registered under a Competent Person Scheme is able to self-certify that their work is in compliance with the Building Regulations 2010.
