Dear Fran

I wish to continue waiting for an answer to my question.


Thank you. We will continue to look for a professional to assist you. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance while you wait.
1. Essentially, I would advise the client to cure his breach immediately by applying for the necessary authorisation and then cease works until the necessary period of notice has elapsed and the relevant authorisation has been obtained from the HSA. The client should be aware that he will probably escape with a warning if he pleads human error and seeks to make amends. However, if the works continue without any authorisation ever being obtained, then a prosecution might accrue. This will impact negatively on any other works the client may wish to carry out. Not getting the necessary authorisation from the HSA is not the worst offence in the world, but if a developer "bulls on ahead", then the HSA will make an example of him.
