Generally there is two ways to create Building Control Notifications:

  • Create it linked to the certificate created on the online system, through the pop-up box option when you completing the electrical certificate.
  • Create one using the gray create notification button on the top left corner of the notification page. (If you want to submit building control notifications for handwritten certificates or for certificates created with other softwares)

The two options are the same in perspective of the notification form. The first page of the notification form will require the location details of the works:

The post code lookup function will show a list of addresses for the postcode. If it does not return any matches you can fill out the address fields manually as well.

The "PO or Reference" field stands for Purchase Order or Reference number. This is only for your local administration and is optional.
