Getting Started

The site is free to use and is managed by the Scottish Government in partnership with all Scottish local authorities.

It provides an easy-to-use way for you to complete and send in building warrant applications, submit completions certificates and other related forms associated with the end to end process of the building standards system. It also allows you to attach supporting drawings and documents, buy and mark up a location plan and pay the application fee electronically.

The site guides you through the process and will assist you in making a valid application or submission to the local authority. This will also speed up the process.

Creating an Account

First you will need to create an account. There is no charge for this and the information you provide is used only by you. You will be asked to confirm your email address. This will be required to access your account later.

General Public

It doesn't take long to understand what you need to do to complete and send your application or submission correctly. Starting the process using your online account will allow you to complete your application or submission in simple steps.

You can save your application or submission at any time and return to it later to finish it. You can correct any mistakes without the need to start again with a new form. You can also share access to your proposal with people you may want to help you, for example, your agent such as your architect, surveyor, or structural engineer.

Professional Users

Sending in your applications or submissions electronically saves time and money.

Our consultants estimate that, on average, eBuilding standards will save £280 for every building warrant application made online. This includes making better use of time for other work, and saves time from that of posting an application.

Professional users often manage a collection of proposals with a number of colleagues and often on behalf of clients. Professional users can register an organisation, which allows them to share access and make the most of the advanced features of the portal. Colleagues can share proposals with each other to contribute to completing the application or submission. For example filling in a form or uploading supporting documents. Agents can also allow clients to view their own application.

Paper Forms

If you need to use the paper forms, you can access them .

Please note not all all authorities accept paper forms. For more information please get in touch with your local authority
