The Building Safety Act 2022 names HSE as the new Building Safety Regulator (BSR) in England.

This course will provide an overview of how to develop the accompanying documents for the building control elements for buildings within scope of the Act. These include the construction control plan, change control plan, building regulations compliance statement, fire and emergency file, competence declaration and mandatory occurrence reporting proposals.

  • Understand the transfer from the construction phase to occupation phase for buildings within scope of the Act
