Competence Steering Group
The Competence Steering Group is an industry-led group established to develop proposals for oversight of competence and increased competence in key disciplines across design, construction, inspection, maintenance and management of buildings. It is a cross industry body backed by Government, the Industry Safety Steering Group and Dame Judith Hackett and representing more than 150 organisations.
In October 2020, the final report, 'Setting the Bar: a new competence regime for building a safer future', was published. This provides a blueprint for improving the competence of those working on higher-risk buildings and driving culture change in the industry. It was produced by a cross-industry group.
