The Building (Higher-Risk Buildings Procedures) (England) Regulations 2023

The purpose of the Building (Higher-Risk Buildings Procedures) (England) Regulations 2023 is to support the new higher-risk building control regime. The amendments made to the Building Act 1984 (the 1984 Act) by amendments in the Building Safety Act (the 2022 Act) provide for the Building Safety Regulator (the Regulator) to be the building control authority for all higher-risk buildings. This instrument provides the detail of the building control regime for higher-risk buildings. This instrument specifies the procedural building regulation requirements when a new higher-risk building is being designed and constructed or when building work is being done to an existing higher-risk building (collectively known as higher-risk building work).

This instrument is one of a package of statutory instruments laid by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, which will facilitate the implementation of changes to the current building control system and deliver improvements across the entire built environment.
