Hi! The English site is only a beta for now and still has many errors (especially in names and locations).
We are working hard to fix them and making more content available than ever before so expect constant updates.
The registration of responsible parties is part of the process of obtaining a building permit. This includes registering the construction manager, the master tradesman, and the design manager's report. Registrations are online, and paper submissions are not accepted.
You can find them on My Pages of Reykjavík's website. There, you can fill out the registration forms without having to print anything and sign the documents electronically.
Information is obtained from the Housing and Construction Authority (HMS) credential registry (réttindagátt), so only individuals with the appropriate construction manager and master tradesman credentials can be registered.
This registration takes place after the building plans have been approved. If you have not yet submitted a building permit application or received confirmation of plan approval, you can relax for now.
Once you have obtained plan approval, you can choose an individual to act as the construction manager on your behalf and register them online. The construction manager then registers the master tradesmen responsible for the work, and the design manager completes the design manager's report.
The applicant logs in to My Pages using their electronic ID.
The appropriate registration form is filled out and sent for electronic signing with one click.
Registered parties receive an email notification where they can electronically sign the document. Please note that all parties must sign the document electronically for it to be submitted to the Building Commissioner.
Once all parties have signed, the registration is sent to the Building Commissioner. This registration is necessary to issue a building permit.
If there are changes to construction managers, master tradesmen, or designers, you must currently notify us in writing. We are working on also making this registration available online.
Approved building plans only indicate whether a potential construction project meets legal requirements. You cannot start construction immediately; you need a formally issued building permit.
This registration is part of the process of obtaining a building permit. In addition, you must submit the appropriate documents and pay the fees. If you are unsure about the status of your application, you should contact the architect you have hired for the project.
You must have en electronic ID for these registrations. You can apply for digital credentials from banks, phone companies, or Auðkenni at Borgartún 31.
