Who is LABC (Local Authority Building Control)

LABC (Local Authority Building Control) is the national organisation that represents all local authority building control teams in England and Wales.

Each of their local authorities believe all new buildings, conversions and extensions can be delivered to the right standards by coordinating the design, specification, construction and completion phases.

Local councils care about the long-term safety, inclusivity and performance of buildings in your communities.

LABC teams are independent, impartial, and not for profit. Public service building control is committed to safeguarding the safety and protection of our communities by constantly reviewing surveyor competence and ensuring the performance and standards of our teams.

They also advise on public safety, consumer protection, safety at sports grounds, dangerous structures and routinely work with the emergency services and other functions such as HSE, Trading Standards and Environmental Health to deliver safe buildings.
