BSR Reiterates Approval Transitional Agreements to Construction Industry

The Building Safety Regulator (BSR) have reiterated the transitional arrangements to the construction industry around building control approval.

Developers can assure projects qualify to stay within previous rules and avoid transfer to BSR by ensuring they take the following steps:

  • If your project had building control arrangements established before October 1st, 2023, and has made substantial progress before April 6th, 2024, it qualifies for transitional provisions.
  • Under these provisions, your project can continue to be regulated by your existing building control provider. This will require your building control provider to be appropriately registered with the BSR.
  • In order to benefit from this, it is essential that you give notice to the relevant local authority, indicating that your building work has progressed sufficiently. If your project involves an Approved Inspector (AI), ensure to provide a copy of this notice to your AI as well.
  • Failure to send this notice to the local authority will result in your project transferring to the BSR.
  • Projects must use a suitably Registered Building Inspector (RBI) to continue benefitting from the transitional arrangements.
