      • Online webinar

12th DECEMBER - Fully booked
15th DECEMBER - New date available

This webinar will be especially useful for building contractors, facilities managers, building operators, engineers, designers, and other professionals in the built environment who want to know more about recent regulatory and legislative changes to the built environment, including teething problems and lessons learned as industry endeavours to achieve compliance.

The Building Safety Act is a landmark piece of legislation intended to make buildings safer and gives powers to new oversight bodies to ensure compliance. It also overhauls existing regulations.

In addition to providing an update on recent legislative and regulatory changes, this webinar will:

  • Provide examples of what the changes mean for the industry, for example, how the implementation of the Fire Safety Regulations is affecting landlords and organisations responsible for residential buildings.

  • Examine the roll-out of powers for oversight bodies such as the Building Safety Regulator, and in so doing, explore some of the teething problems and lessons learned, including applications to register properties.

  • Offer a summary of recent changes to the Building Regulations, including Part B for Fire Safety, but also Parts F (Ventilation), L (Conservation of Fuel and Power), O (Overheating), and S (Infrastructure for Charging Electric Vehicles).

  • Launch BSRIA’s new topic guide TG 24/2023 Building Regulations - a short topic guide to provide industry awareness of building regulations.
