The Welsh Government has published its response to the consultation on the definition of a Higher‐Risk Building (HRB). It confirms that a HRB in Wales will be defined as over 18 metres or more than seven storeys with a single residential unit, as opposed to two or more residential units in England. A number of standards, codes and rules documents have also been published in relation to the new building control system in Wales, which will commence in April 2024.
