The act establishes the new role of Building Safety Regulator which will sit within the Health & Safety Executive.  It will have a duty to support industry in improving compliance and competence and be involved in advising on Building Regulations as part of its remit.

The act has provision for secondary legislation, some of which already been drafted.  They can be found here and were published in July 2021.  The Competency draft covers all works covered by Buildings Regulations for both domestic and non-domestic.
