The adverse and unintended consequences of Building Control (Amendment) Regulations (SI.9 of 2014) are explored by contributors to this radio programme:


The discussion regarding Building Control (Amendment) Regulation (SI.9 of 2014) continues with representations by technically qualified persons not registered to provide new certifier duties and the adverse implications on their liveleyhoods. A building supplier talks about local gatherings to discuss adverse implications on his business. All contributors explore the conflicting information provided by the Department of the Environment to date. Quote from the presenter Joe Duffy: “The one thing we have not gotten from anyone has been clarity…the Department of the Environment tried to tell us yesterday (in a written statement to the show) on the one hand there was no difference, on the other hand additional costs…if there is no difference there should be no additional costs”. Still no representative from the Department of the environment has appeared to explain the issues.
