[NEWS] Building Control Amendment Regulations 2013

Another step closer…

Here’s the previous post on the Building Control Amendment Regulations 2013 (it also references other posts I’ve written on the subject).

Only additional news is that the Amended Regulations were announced yesterday by Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government, Phil Hogan, T.D.

My only additional comment concerns the following excerpt:

In response to concerns about the registration of Architects, in particular the limited number of applications to date from practically-trained architects, the Minister has asked Mr Garret Fennell, Solicitor, who is currently serving as the Chairperson of the Admissions Board relevant to the register of Architects, to carry out an independent review of the experience to date in relation to the operation of the register with a view to identifying any further improvements that can be made at this point. The Minister has particularly asked for the report to give recommendations or views on how the registration of practically trained architects can be further encouraged.

You can expect a lot of lobbying for ‘practically-trained architects’ to be entered onto the RIAI register, no comment at this stage but watch this space…
