Welcome to the Building Control Management System (BCMS). A Commencement Notice is required to give notice to Building Control Authorities of the erection of buildings, or classes of buildings, or the carrying out of works, or classes of works, as may be specified in the regulations. A building or works may also require a Fire Safety Certificate Application, a Disability Access Certificate Application and/or a Certificate of Compliance on Completion. For specific works or buildings an application for a Dispensation from or a Relaxation of a requirement to the building regulations may be appropriate. Each Owner, Designer, Builder and Assigned Certifier must first register/sign up with the BCMS to make a submission or accept a role. S.I. 9 of 2014 recommends this BCMS site as the preferred means of electronic building control administration.
