Building Regulations and Replacement Windows
All replacement windows are required to comply with thermal installation standards plus safety glazing and other requirements of the Building Regulations.
There are 2 options available:-
If the installer is registered with FENSA (Fenestration Self Assessment Scheme). Then details of the installation will be notified to the Local Authority via FENSA and a Completion Certificate will be issued to the householder confirming compliance with the regulations.
If the installer is not registered with FENSA they must give a Building Notice (and relevant fee) to the local authority detailing the proposed installation. The local authority will then make the necessary inspections and issue a Completion Certificate to the homeowner.
