Abstract: The aim of this research was the analysis of the institutions concerned in policy making and legality implementation, related to the safety of construction works, with the aim to ensure the community, the possibility of utilization of guaranteed civil engineering structures and high-quality construction materials. The main institution which guarantees the quality of the construction projects design and the quality of construction materials used in Albania territory, is the Albanian Institute of Construction. The Ministry of Infrastructure and Energy has failed to complete the legal framework, where quality of construction materials and construction projects design issues, should be entrusted to a competent institution, where its activity, in this case the Albanian Institute of Construction, has to be guaranteed by law. The lack of qualified staff, the recruitment employees without the necessary experience, as well as the lack of a non-accredited laboratory in ALIC, has led to the provision of low-quality technical reviews and lack of quality control of construction materials.
