Section 52 Building Act 1984 - Approved Inspectors are private sector Building Control Bodies to whom Building Regulations applications can be made instead of to your Local Authority. We have been made aware that certain Approved Inspectors can no longer operate due to not being able to obtain the required insurances. If you have a current Building Regulations application with an Approved Inspector you should check whether it is with one of those companies affected. If it is, you should contact us for further advice. Our team is here to help you through this unexpected situation.
