Standards for Rented Houses is a training programme for all staff, both professional/technical and administrative, who have responsibilities related to enforcement of the Housing (Standards for Rented Houses) Regulations 2019. The IPA, working in close collaboration with the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage, present this four-day training progamme.
The programme seeks to bring about a common understanding among Inspectorate Staff, and thereby a standardisation, in interpretation and implementation of the Regulations and Guidelines both within individual local authorities and across the sector generally.
This course is ideally suited for newcomers into the area of enforcement of the minimum standards. It will enable all participants share individual experiences and approaches as currently adopted, as well as providing an opportunity to network with other Inspectorate Staff. It is also open to HSE Environmental Health Officers and third party private contractors undertaking rental inspections on behalf of Local Authorities.
