What is a Disability Access Certificate?

A Disability Access Certificate (DAC) shows that you have made adequate provision for people with disabilities by complying with Part M of the Building Regulations 1997-2010.

You must apply for a DAC for all new buildings (including apartments, but not houses).  You can check the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government’s FAQs for more information.

How to apply

Download the DAC application form and send the completed application form and supporting documents to:

Building Control Section,

Roads Department
Kildare County Council,
Áras Chill Dara, Devoy Park, Naas, Co. Kildare.

Or you can hand in your application form which must be accompanied by two copies of:

  • drawings to scale, with site or layout plan, floor plans, elevations and sections all clearly marked
  • a detailed compliance report
  • fee

at the Roads Counter on Level 4 Áras Chill Dara.  Opening hours are Monday to Friday, from 9:30am to 4:30pm.  Contact: 045-980842.


The fee for a DAC is €800 per building.  A reduced fee of €500 per building applies when a DAC is lodged on the same day as a Fire Certificate Application.
