With the Building Safety Act in force and the Regulator starting to build the infrastructure necessary to manage and monitor and to develop guidance, FIS has developed initial guidance to help members consider what the impact of new Gateways will be on the construction process.

Commenting on the guidance FIS Technical Director, Joe Cilia said:

“It is important to remember that the Building Safety Act is designed to change the process and culture of construction.  It is vital that we start to work together to understand the impact and how our processes and working practice will need to evolve.  We have been working with a number of groups and felt it important to share our early thinking and start to explore changes with our members.”

FIS is setting up a working group to look at Building Safety Act compliance that will start to meet in the Autumn – if you are interested in getting involved, please email joecilia@thefis.org
