CIRI was established by the Construction Industry Federation (CIF) as a voluntary register of builders and contractors in April 2014.
To date approximately 800 building and contracting entities have registered, and these mostly consist of companies as opposed to tradesmen.
Hubert Fitzpatrick, Director of Housing for the CIF said: “It is not acceptable that a person or company without adequate training or experience can portray themselves as a builder to the public. All registered builders on the register will be required to undertake continuing training and development so that they keep abreast of new building regulations requirements and building standards.”
