Inspections Code of Practice

Inspections code of practice

Inspections take place while works are in progress (to check that appropriate signage and barriers are in place to protect workers and road users) and once they have finished (to check that the site has been properly cleared and the road reinstated to a proper standard).

Authorities have legal powers to recover a fee for various types of inspection, and these are set out in regulations and a Code of Practice.

This Code of Practice - which came into force on 1 October 2002 - gives guidance on procedures for inspecting works, investigations, improvement plans, fee arrangements and reports.
