What is a 7-Day Notice?
Article 20A sets out the procedure for submission of a 7 day notice application to a building control authority where a person intends to commence work on the construction of a building before grant of the relevant fire safety certificate (FSC). This notice must be accompanied by a 7 day notice statutory declaration form which declares that the works will comply with the building regulations and that any modifications required by the Fire Safety Certificate will be completed within the specified time. The notice must be submitted not less than 7 days in advance of commencement of work and must be in accordance with the requirements of Article 20A(2) of the regulations.
