Buildings: Data Protection

Volume 464: debated on Tuesday 16 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government whether her proposals for enabling electronic communication of building control documents will include data on specific domestic properties which undertake building control work. (157668)

The “Enabling Electronic Communication of Building Control Documents” Regulations proposal, currently out for public consultation, would, subject to the outcome of the consultation and approval of regulations, allow discretionary transmission of all building control documents by electronic means, e.g. applications, notices and certificates. These documents would also include those relating to domestic properties.
