Certificate of Compliance on Completion (the “Completion Certificate”)

1. The ‘Builders’ obligations for the completion certificate:

The Builder must execute Part A of the Completion Certificate certifying that,

“having exercised reasonable skill, care and diligence that the works as completed have been constructed in accordance with the design documents submitted and reliant on this, the works are in compliance with Building Regulations”.

The Undertaking (submitted with the Commencement Notice) and the Completion Certificate are specifically required to be signed by a “Principal or Director of a building company only” and both documents provide an entry for the Builder’s “Construction Industry Register Ireland registration number”. A new registry of builders has been set up in this regard ( The registry is voluntary at present but may become mandatory in the near future.

2. The Assigned Certifier:

The Assigned Certifier having inspected the building works during construction and provide a certificate of compliance on completion.

The Assigned Certifier must be a competent professional such as a:
Chartered Engineer
Registered Building Surveyor.

Dublin Surveys team of chartered engineers and chartered surveyors provide all services to be met under the new building regulations criteria or as your chosen Assigned Certifier’ for your project:

Key roles of the ‘Assigned Certifier’ in the ‘Completion certificate’

The Completion Certificate, executed by both the Assigned Certifier and the Builder, must be submitted to the Building Control Authority.

The Completion Certificate must be accompanied by:

  • Such plans etc., as are required to outline how the completed works differ from the plans submitted at commencement stage,
  • The plans as are required to outline how the completed works comply with the Building Regulations
  • Inspection Plan implemented by the Assigned Certifier.

Works or buildings cannot be “opened, occupied or used” until the relevant particulars of the Certificate of Compliance on Completion are entered on a statutory register to be kept by the Building Control Authority. However, the 2014 Regulations provide that the Completion Certificate may refer to:

“works, buildings, including areas within a building, or developments, including phases thereof…”, indicating that works can be completed in stages if necessary.
