Compliance for High-Rise Residential Buildings

The Building Safety Act 2022: A New Approach to Ensuring the Safety of High-Rise Residential Buildings in the UK.

The Building Safety Act 2022 is a significant piece of legislation that sets out a new approach to ensuring the safety of high-rise residential buildings in the UK. In response to the tragedies and lessons of the past, this Act introduces a number of new requirements for building owners, managers, and leaseholders.

The Act requires building owners to register their buildings with the Building Safety Regulator and to develop a safety case that details the risks associated with their building and the measures in place to mitigate those risks. The Act also requires building owners to establish a Safety Management System (SMS) to manage building safety risks on an ongoing basis.

The Building Safety Act is a complex piece of legislation, and compliance can be challenging. However, it is essential that building owners, managers, and leaseholders take steps to comply with the Act in order to ensure the safety of their buildings and the people who live and work in them.
