Search the Building Standards Register

The new Building Standards Register, new applications for building warrants, applications in progress.

There will be a new online Building Standards Register on 12 April 2021.

From 12 March to 12 April 2021 there will be a transition period between the current building standards register and a new building standards register. This means there will be some changes to how you search for building warrants during this four-week period. 

During the transition period, you should check both the current building standards register and the new building standards register to make sure you have all of the correct information on the building warrant you are looking for.


New applications for building warrants

You can apply for a building warrant on the Scottish Government eBuildingStandards Portal at any stage during this transition period.

We will continue to conduct site inspections, issue completion certificates, and assess building warrants which have been registered before 12 March 2021.


Applications made before 12 March 2021

If you apply for a new building warrant on or before 12 March 2021, and we have validated it, you will see the details on the current building standards register.

If you submit a building warrant application to us, and it doesn't include all the relevant information or the correct fee, we won't be able to progress the application until after 12 April 2021.


Applications made between 12 March and 12 April 2021

If you apply for a building warrant to us after 12 March 2021, and we have validated it, you will see the details on the new building standards register.

However, we are not able to issue any approved building warrants between 12 March and 12 April 2021.

If you submit revisions to building plans or warrants during the transition period, they will not be processed until after 12 April 2021.
