Suitable for:       All What does this mean?

All the main provisions of Building Safety Act 2022 came into force in October 2023. The new Building Safety Regulator expects full compliance by this date – no excuses. Are you ready?  Do you have the following in place?

  • The Mandatory Occurrence reporting framework
  • The golden thread of information
  • The resident engagement strategies
  • A bsepoke complaints process
  • The safety case(s)

Have you got all the information that you must provide to the Building Safety Regulator ready for registration. Are you ready to apply for your Building Assessment Certificate?

And, importantly, do you have the right data and information to provide assurance to your resident, boards and elected members that the building that you own and manage are safe?

Alongside this, it’s time to start preparing for the new consumer regulation framework (introduced but the Social Housing (Regulation) Act 2023) which will come into play in April 2024. The new consumer standard on safety will apply to all buildings. What does this mean in practice – what will the Regulator of Social Housing expect?

Remember, the safety of your residents is not determined by the height of the buildings that live in – while there are specific statutory requirements for buildings over 18 meters, raising the standard of safety is fundamental for all your residents. This session will provide a range of good practice for you to adopt across all the homes you own and manage.
