Building Control (Amendment) Regulations 2018 in operation
The Republic of Ireland Building Control (Amendment) Regulations 2018 came into operation in on December 17th 2018.
This amends certain provisions of the Building Control Regulations with regard to those types of development which require a Disability Access Certificate (DAC) and those which do not.
It separates the previous connection between the requirement for a Fire Safety Certificate and the requirement for a DAC.
It does not relax the requirement to comply with Building Regulations Part M - Access & Use in all proposed developments.
A full account of the changes is available on the document itself. It is available at: http://www.irishstatutebook.ie/eli/2018/si/526/made/en/pdf
