Not collated, as breaches would be dealt with on a case by case, during the course of site inspections, thus avoiding legal action.

Number of Enforcement Actions due to non-compliance with Part P of the Building Regulations*
See above. The majority of work however will be covered by a competent persons scheme certificate.

Number of prosecutions due to non-compliance with Part P of the Building Regulations**
None
