Amendments to Certificates of Design
Within the Members Area of the BRE website there is a facility to amend Certificates of Design. This facility should only be used when a data entry error has been made or if the original certificate has been lost.
For minor design changes (e.g. a change to the type of front door used) where there is no change to the original calculation (e.g. SAP or SBEM), you should write to your client and/or the building standards department of the relevant local authority to confirm that there has been no change to the building's compliance. You do not have to amend or re-issue the original certificate.
For all other design changes (e.g. a change of floor, wall, roof, etc) you should issue a new certificate of design. Please review sections 4.1.13 to 4.1.18 of the Building Standards Division Certification Handbook for clarification.
