Building Safety Regulator

The Building Safety Regulator is reportedly recruiting an additional 160 workers to form a more than 400-strong workforce.

From October, the BSR will become the building control authority for multi-occupied high-rise buildings in England. All those who own or manage high rises in England need to register their buildings with the BSR before 1 October 2023.
