3.0 Interpretation of the data

3.1. The 2021 data collection exercise was submitted by each verifier via the ScotXed web platform. As before, validation rules were built into the 2021 collection to assist verifiers in returning accurate data. Building Standards Division carried out a quality assurance review of all returns. This review led to further checks and amendments by some verifiers to provide a complete and accurate dataset.

3.2. Building Standards Division has taken on board comments from verifiers to enhance the data collection since it was introduced in 2019. The changes were described in accompanying guidance for verifiers.
