SCCB ensures inspection and operational supervision of public buildings for safety of public and guests in Latvia.

Basic requirements for assessment of operationally “safe” building:

  • mechanical resistance and stability;
  • safety of use and accessibility of environment;
  • absence of unauthorized construction.

Additionally to the above mentioned requirements, safety in case of fire, hygiene, health and the environment are evaluated.

During the inspection the SCCB inspector visually examines a building or structure and its maintenance documentation, including the technical inspection report.

After the inspection the conclusion on the operational safety of a public building and proof of any unauthorized construction is made according to the requirements specified in respective regulatory enactments.
