Scottish Ministers are responsible for creating Building Regulations and preparing technical guidance to ensure buildings are safe, efficient and sustainable for all.
The Customer Journey explains the roles and responsibilities of the home owner in relation to the building standards process. This gives helpful guidance to those who intend to carry out building work and where to seek help.
To obtain a building warrant, please seek assistance from the relevant local authority. Local authorities administer the Building Standards system and are responsible for granting permission for work to be done (Building Warrant) and for a completed building to be occupied (Completion Certificate).
