Quick Facts about the Building Safety Act

The Building Safety Act impacts all building works, not just higher-risk buildings (HRBs). Therefore, even if you aren't work on buildings classified as HRBs, you still need to understand how the act may affect you and your project. 


Higher-Risk Buildings (HRBs)

Under the act, a higher-risk building (HRB) is a building 18m in height or 7 storeys, with at least two residential units. These projects have additional legilsative requirements under the act. 

HRBs must follow a new gateway process, with gateways at planning, construction and occupation. 

Building Safety Regulator

A new regulator called the Building Safety Regulator (BSR) have been introduced to oversee the new building safety regime. They sit under the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and will enforce the new Building Safety Act 2022 legislation.

New building regulations principal designer (BR PD) and contractor (BR PC) roles have been introduced. Clients have a responsibility to appoint competent people to perform these roles on all building works, not just higher-risk buildings.
