Memorandum of Understanding

“A Better Way to Build”

The objectives are to set out a framework of co-operation and collaboration between Scotland’s 32 Building Standards Services and their stakeholders. This is actioned by working agreements between the stakeholders and LABSS. MOU agreements are currently in place with:

  • Scottish Fire and Rescue Service - This sets out the framework of co-operation and collaboration between the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) and the Local Authority Building Standards Scotland (LABSS). The scope covers relevant functions of each organisation, areas of co-operation, exchange of information, training initiatives and joint promotion and publicity.
