Welcome to Essex Building Control

The Essex Building Surveyors Association (EBSA) was formed in 1991 and comprises the heads of the building control services of all the local authorities in Essex, namely:

The objectives of the Association are as follows:

  1. To further the profession of Local Authority Building Control by providing a regular forum for the discussion of Building Regulations and allied matters affecting the local authorities served by members of the Association and where necessary, promote action thereon.
  2. To arrange for the collation of information concerning Building Regulations along with allied matters and provide a means whereby the knowledge and experience of individual members can be made available to the body of membership and where possible to their authorities, Associations, Central Government and other relevant organisations.
  3. To promote discussion on all matters of interest to members and to afford help and advice to members in the execution of their duties.
  4. To disseminate amongst members information on all matters affecting them and to print, publish, issue and distribute such papers, periodicals, books, circulars and other literary undertakings as may seem conducive to any of these objectives.
  5. To co-operate and liaise with relevant bodies concerned with the profession.
  6. To promote the training and continuing professional development of those directly associated with the profession.
