Building Standards Approved Certifier

Building Standards Approved Certifier

The building standards system in Scotland is established by the Building (Scotland) Act 2003. The Act gives powers to Scottish Ministers to make building regulations and other supporting legislation as necessary, to fulfil the purposes of the Act.

The intention of the building standards system is to ensure that all building work to new and existing buildings meets reasonable standards by securing the health, safety, welfare and convenience of people in and around buildings, furthering the conservation of fuel and power and to further the achievement of sustainable development.

The status of Approved Certifier is only given to people who hold the appropriate qualifications and have sufficient experience to certify that an installation is compliant.

Finding a Contractor

The Scottish Government advise consumers to think about who you will use to carry out work on your home: Ensure that the trader is competent - do they have the skills needed to do the job well using the right materials? Ensure that the trader is reputable - what recourse would you have if there was a problem?

There is no list of recommended contractors. The Scottish Government cannot recommend individual traders and a list would require constant monitoring and checking by people with expertise in the quality of completed work. New companies appear and good employees move between companies regularly, so there is difficulty in assuring a list is current and valid. However, the Scottish Government recommends using tradespeople who are members of professional trade schemes. This firm is a member of one of the schemes listed on their site



With its foundation as The Electrical Contractors' Association of Scotland at the birth of a new century, SELECT became the first trade association in the world to serve the electrical industry.

From its beginnings, SELECT has led industry standards and we continue to ensure that work carried out by Member companies is of the highest quality, employs the best of modern technology and, above all, is safe. Enforcement of the approved standards is carried out by SELECT's Inspection Service which is accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service to ISO/IEC 17020.

Membership of SELECT gives clients confidence that they are dealing with a quality contractor backed by a comprehensive range of guarantee schemes, a Charter on client complaints and a Code of Conduct with disciplinary procedures built in.
