This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for a 10-year-old house because it was not satisfied that it complied with certain clauses of the Building Code (First Schedule, Building Regulations 1992).
The matter to be determined, under section 177(b) of the Act is therefore whether the authority was correct to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate.
In making this decision, it must be considered:
- Whether the external claddings to the house ('the claddings') comply with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture of the Building Code;
- Whether the elements that make up the building work comply with Building Code Clause B2 Durability, taking into account the age of the house.
