Building Safety Bill - important new proposed legislation for the construction industry

21 October, 2020

In Autumn 2020 the UK Government introduced the new draft legislation to parliament. It is expected to take a year or so to become law as a new Building Safety Act and a further 3 years for implementation across the built environment sector.



The CIOB backs the Government's recommendations and has published several articles on the subject which can be found on its website at Commentaries, guidance and advice will be forthcoming from various other industry leading voices such as the attached Q&A from Pinsent Masons produced after their webinar on the topic in September 2020.
