Starting from October 1st, the Building Safety Regulator (BSR) will officially take on the role of Building Control Body for higher-risk buildings, with plans to provide a transitional period for ongoing projects. For all other buildings, the Building Control Body can be either a department in the Local Authority or a Building Control Approver, a private company that provides Building Inspectors. Building Inspectors will be required to undergo an assessment and certification process in order to register with the BSR between October 2023 and April 2024. The Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE) and the Building Safety Competence Foundation have been announced as the first independent competence assessors to partner with the BSR.
The BSR recently conducted a webinar that provides an insightful overview of the new building control process, the new duty holder roles, and three Gateways. Members who missed the webinar can register to watch it on demand at their convenience. The BSR’s new role as the Building Control Body for higher-risk buildings is a significant step in ensuring the safety of building occupants and reducing the risk of future disasters.
