LABC to clamp down on unregistered roof refurbishment work
Last year, working with CompetentRoofer, Local Authority Building Control (LABC) contacted roofing companies in five areas of England and reviewed records with a view to clamping down on unregistered roof refurbishment work.
LABC will again be looking to clamp down on unregistered roof refurbishment work within five areas of England and Wales between 1 April and 31 May 2014.
It’s easy for us to spot the companies that are not registering works and thus easy for Local Authority Building Control (LABC) to spot them as well. If they find roofing work that hasn't been reported, they will have the option to systematically go back through that company's records, if necessary over an extended back-dated period.
We really don’t want members to be caught out by this. If you are undertaking work whereby 50% or more of the roof is being refurbished and that roof is a thermal element (a separation of hot and cold space), it’s reportable.
As a requirement of our licence, we need to have copies of your current public and liability documents.
For this reason, we will be contacting those of you for whom our files need updating.
Each year, when you renew your public and liability insurance, please send us a copy of the confirmation letter from your insurer.
We a Members of the scheme and can fully comply with all regulations
