CIOB welcomes Government proposals on building safety

Chartered Institute of Building

1 min read Member content

The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) has welcomed the Government’s draft Building Safety Bill, which outlines the first comprehensive reform of building safety regulations since their introduction under the 1984 Building Act.

There is likely to be substantive change across many aspects of the system, with design, specification, procurement, construction, building control and management of buildings during occupation, and the competencies of those working on buildings all in scope.  Much of the detail will require substantial secondary legislation, and getting that detail right is crucial, according to the CIOB’s director of policy, research and public affairs.  The CIOB welcomes the functions of the new Building Safety Regulator (BSR) which gives the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) much needed power to improve Building Standards.

Eddie Tuttle, CIOB Director of Policy, Research and Public Affairs commented,

"We very much support the publication of the Bill and look forward to working with Government and the industry to ensure that the substantive detail is right and that there is assurance  that buildings and those who use them are safer and those working on them are fully competent to do this work.”
