Building Standards Scotland

The Building Standards Division of the Scottish government has launched the enforcement and sanctions public consultation (closing on 15 January 2024). The consultation seeks feedback on the proposals for strengthening existing enforcement powers and increasing penalties for offences under the Building (Scotland) Act 2003. The proposals are to:

  • include owners in the offences for occupation without completion (section 21)

  • include removal of work, introduce a standalone stop notice and clarify the scope of section 27 to take action after acceptance of a completion certificate for Higher-Risk Buildings (HRBs) with a time limit for serving enforcement notices (section 27); and
  • increase penalties for offences (section 48) that will also apply to Offences by bodies corporate etc. (section 49).
