6 questions employers should ask themselves.
1. Do my staff have the necessary skill and experience for technical site inspections, specification checking & design audit. Will I need to invest in upskilling?
2. What level of supervision do my staff have at present, do I need to make changes to the way that the office works?
3. Am I happy to have the design staff self-certify their own work or do I need to arrange an office audit team?
4. Will I personally have to take a more active involvement in site inspections and will this impact on my other work?
5. Will I take on the Assigned Certifier role, will I subcontract it out or will I be advising my clients to make separate appointments?
6. If I take on the role in-house will I get any additional fees for the additional work?
