This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on 21 July 2005, amend the Building (Forms) Regulations 2004 (
“the principal regulations”).
The regulations prescribe 2 new forms required for the application and issue of certificates for public use. A certificate for public use, provided for by a recent amendment to the Building Act 2004, may be issued for premises (or part) affected by a building work if the territorial authority concerned is satisfied that the premises (or part) can be safely used by members of the public.
The regulations also make minor amendments to certain forms in the principal regulations.
