  • Background to the bill
  • Who is affected
  • What buildings are in scope
  • What new responsibilities will be introduced
  • Practical measures for the next phase

The speakers also provide details of our Building a Safer Future series. Designed to help you navigate the transition to the new building safety rules and procedures, emphasising the preparations you can make now, and the practical changes that will be required in your day-to-day building management and construction working practices.
