Building Warrant

Scottish Building Standards

Building Warrants

New building regulations came into force in Scotland on 1st May 2005 which introduced more stringent rules governing electrical work carried out as part of works covered by a building warrant.


Electrical installation work and certification involved within domestic or non-domestic Building Warrant work should now be completed by a qualified Electrical Approved Body and Certifier under the new Scottish Building Regulations 2004.

AC Gold Electrical Services Ltd can now carry out this work for customers throughout Central Scotland and we will provide full electrical installation and the necessary building standards certification required under the new scheme, making the process of your local authority passing the building warrant work much easier and less time consuming.

When is a Building Warrant required?

A building warrant is likely to be required if you intend to; erect, alter, extend, demolish or change the use of any structure.

It is the responsibility of the building’s owner to find out if a building warrant or other permission is required prior to building work commencing.

You can find out more information on the new building regulations scheme by visiting the Scottish Building Standards website.

AC Gold Electrical Services can carry out and certify building warrant work for local authorities throughout Central Scotland.
