Private building control bodies provide an alternative to local authority building control.  Unlike local authority building control bodies, approved building inspectors are subject to a rigorous selection process and have to undertake regular audits via their governing body the CICAIR.

Here at Approved Building Control we are chartered members of the Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE) as well as the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) both of which guarantee our customers a high level of professional service for their projects.
