Building Standards certification in Scotland: report

The official report from the Building Standards certification workshop held in September 2014, produced in collaboration with the stakeholders who attended.

The main purpose of the event was to launch the new online certification register, bringing together all information on approved bodies and approved certifiers in Scotland. The workshop also discussed four key parts of the certification process, and how they could be improved:

  • equivalence between certified and verified approaches
  • incentives to improve the take up of certification
  • value of improved certifiers
  • promotion and awareness of certification

The workshop was chaired by Peter Wood from Optimal Economics Ltd. and supported by the Building Standards division.
