when i was getting my work ready for assesment (2 years ago) i played it by the book,it cost me £300 + to pay for my building regs applications and when the NIC guy came out he never even mentioned building control he was only interested in the cert i had issued for both jobs but you have to give the NIC the addresses of your site visit well in advance so maybe they check from there end before they come out:eek: i dont know what to advise you to do,it might save you five hundred smackers(seems steep)but it could cost you if the nic do check.good luck with it.;)

I did my Elecsa this friday and they did n't even mention Building Control.

According to there website NIC give you 12 months to comply so I'm sure he'll tell you if its a problem then you'll probably just have to send them proof..rather do it that way than fork out £500 up front.

I Really would n't worry about it...It would be a harsh assessor who fails you on that...there just want your jobs to comply to regs and ensure that you are up to standards regards testing and inspection...........Good Luck
