Why is this an important topic in digital construction?

Response: The “Building Control Regulations” 1997 (as amended) provide for matters of procedure, administration and control for the purposes of securing the implementation of, and compliance with, the requirements of the Building Regulations: the important control mechanisms include Notices; Applications; Declarations; Certificates and the Statutory Building Control Register.  The Building Control Management System is the preferred means of administration of the Building Control Regulations in Ireland and effectively collates the Building Control Data for every Building Commencement in Ireland.
