The clock is ticking for owners and managers of high-rise residential buildings in England. If you're responsible for a building that's 18 metres tall or has at least seven storeys, it's crucial to register it with the Building Safety Regulator (BSR) before the 1st of October 2023. Here's what you need to know:
Why Register with BSR?
The BSR was established in the wake of the tragic Grenfell fire to enhance the safety of high-rise residents.
Over 10,080 buildings have already initiated their registration.
Failing to register by the deadline could lead to severe consequences, including criminal prosecution.
A Word from the BSR Deputy Chief Inspector
Chris Griffin-McTiernan, the Deputy Chief Inspector of Buildings at BSR, urges all relevant organisations to register their buildings promptly. He highlights the importance of this register in advancing building safety in England. Plus, residents will soon have access to this register, empowering them with transparency and ensuring better oversight for their safety.
Support and Guidance
BSR has been actively promoting the importance of registration through various campaigns and over thirty stakeholder events since April. If you need assistance with the registration process:
