Technical notification in accordance with Directive (EU) 2015/1535 in respect of the essential technical requirements and characteristics of a building product.
Proposal of the Ministry of the Environment for the Government’s draft Planning and Construction Act
The main objectives of the draft Planning and Construction Act are a carbon-neutral society, strengthening of biodiversity, improvement of the quality of construction and promotion of digitalisation. The new law would replace the current Land Use and Building Act.
Technical notification procedure (2015/1535/EU): Chapter 26, Sections 195-207 (essential technical requirements) and Section 285 (characteristics of a building product) of the Planning and Construction Act.
Notification procedure under the Services Directive (2006/123/EC): Sections 29(1)(3) and 39(1)(3) and Sections 58 and 59 of the Planning and Construction Act. These sections propose that the provisions on large retail units be simplified. The regulation relating to large units would be abolished in regional land use planning. Specific requirements for large retail units would apply to local master plans and local detailed plans. The qualitative requirements of the local master plans and local detailed plans would include, as a new requirement, special consideration of the conditions for development of services in city centres. Planning and Construction Act, Chapter 29: Sections 243-253 (qualification requirements), planners must be natural persons (Section 244 of the Planning and Construction Act) and Section 267 of the Planning and Construction Act (building inspector).
