Compliance with the Building Safety Act 2022
Under section 77 of the Building Safety Act 2022, all principal accountable persons (PAP) are responsible for applying for registration of their higher-risk building through the Building Safety Regulator’s digital platform.
Key Building Information about the building and it’s accountable person(s) must be provided to enable the Regulator to confirm:
- the building’s location, and
- it’s scope of requirements under the Act, and
- the identity of the person(s) responsible for the safety of the building and its residents.
All buildings, new and existing, over 18 metres in height must be registered with the Regulator by the 1st of October 2023. After this date, a principal accountable person would commit an offence if a higher-risk building was occupied but not registered.
FRC are able to act as an agent on behalf of the PAP to gather the required information, submit the application and act as the point of contact for the Regulator in connection with the registration process.
