The Building Safety Act 2022 came into force on 28 June 2022. The Ligtas Building Safety Act checklist has been designed to help property owners, landlords and key people to be aware of what is needed and to prepare for the health & safety changes contained in the Building Safety Act.
The Act covers the implications for new construction and existing buildings. If you are responsible for maintaining a building that falls within scope, you will be aware of the need to address certain actions now, and that other actions will require careful planning and resource allocation.
The Act will bring into law regulatory changes to:
- Building regulation
- Control for higher-risk buildings in England
- Changes to building control affecting all buildings
- Accountability and legal duties
- Competency standards
- Construction products regulations
This document will be regularly updated as a myriad of secondary legislation is still required to set some timelines, provide clarification and guidance and, ultimately, bring all aspects of the Act into force.
