The HSE advises that before temporary works designs are put into practice or use that they should be checked for design concept, strength and structural adequacy (including foundations and lateral stability) and compliance with the design brief.
It further states that the design check should be carried out by an independent competent person(s) and that the ability and independence of the checker should be greater where the temporary works are more complex or where new ideas are incorporated. Recommendations for various categories of design check are given in BS5975:2008 The Code of Practice for Temporary Works.
