BESCA offers building reg self certification

CONTRACTORS needing to comply with the new building regulations can now self-certify their work online through BESCA, Building Engineering Services Competence Accreditation Ltd.

The new BESCA website at also enables businesses to register details of jobs, print controlled compliance certificates for clients/customers, and call up records of old jobs. Alongside users' own areas within the site, there is a useful downloads section featuring registration forms, rules, regulations and guidance notes.
