About BCMS

Welcome to the Building Control Management System (BCMS). A commencement notice is required to give notice to Building Control Authorities of the erection of such buildings, or classes of buildings, or the carrying out of such works, or classes of works, as may be specified in the regulations. Note that each party (owner, designer, builder and assigned certifier) to the notice must first register with the BCMS. A building or works may also require a Fire Safety Certificate Application, a Disability Access Certificate Application and a Certificate of Compliance on Completion. The Building Control (Amendment) Regulations SI 9 of 2014 recommends this BCMS site as the preferred means of electronic building control administration.
