National Building Control Office

National Building Control and Market Surveillance Office:

“Promoting a Culture of Compliance with the Building and Construction Products Regulations in an industry marked by rapid changes in technology and processes.”

Commenced in 2014 with the implementation of S.I. 9 of 2014 (Building Control Amendment Regulations); 2019 saw Dublin City Council(DCC) become the lead local authority for the National Building Control Office. Managed as a separate Business Unit in DCC the office provides oversight, support and direction for the development, standardisation and implementation of Building Control (Building Control Acts 1990-2014) as an effective shared service in the 31 Building Control Authorities. 2020 saw Dublin City Council become the lead local authority for the National Market Surveillance Office, which provides oversight, support and direction for the development, standardisation and implementation of Market Surveillance of Construction Products (Construction Products Regulations EU 305/2011 (S.I. No. 225 of 2013 and S.I. 682 of 2020)) as an effective shared service in the 31 Building Control Authorities who are also designated Market Surveillance Authorities under the regulations. Building Control Authorities also have responsibilities under the Building Control Acts 1990-2014 for the EU Energy Performance in Buildings Regulations S.I. 243 of 2012.

The National Building Control Advisory Committee oversees the project on behalf of the sector; Chaired by Dublin City Council (DCC) on behalf of the County and City Management Association (CCMA), membership is from the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage (DHLGH), Construction Industry Council (CIC), National Directorate for Fire and Emergency Management (NDFEM), Building Control Authorities, Chief Fire Officers (CFO).

The objective of the National Building Control and Market Surveillance Office (NBC&MSO) is to provide oversight, support & direction for the development, standardisation and implementation of Building Control and Market Surveillance of Construction Products (Construction Products Regulations EU 305/2011 (S.I. No. 225 of 2013 and S.I. 682 of 2020)) as an effective shared service in the 31 Building Control Authorities who fund the Office.

This is achieved through five pillars which include Inspection, Education Training, Compliance Support and Market Surveillance pillars supported by the IS-BCMS (Building Control Management System) pillar.

The overall vision is to promote a “Culture of Compliance with the Building and Construction Products Regulations” among owners, builders, designers and assigned certifiers to ensure “health and safety of people in or about buildings” i.e. safe, accessible sustainable and good quality compliant building stock.
