2012/049: Regarding the refusal to issue a code compliance certificate for a 16 year-old house with monolithic cladding

Explanatory note

This determination contained an error when it was issued on 12 July 2012. At Paragraph 6.5.2 it read, "No compelling reasons have been submitted to support the view that Clause E2 should be waived. I consider that such a waiver would be appropriate in this instance."

The word "not" was mistakenly omitted from the second sentence. To correct this error, paragraph 6.5.2 is now to be read as follows, "No compelling reasons have been submitted to support the view that Clause E2 should be waived. I consider that such a waiver would not be appropriate in this instance."
