Building Safety Bill receives Royal Assent
The Building Safety Bill has today received Royal Assent.
The Bill has completed all the parliamentary stages in both Houses and now becomes an Act of Parliament.
It is almost a year since the Bill received its first reading in the House of Commons, in July 2021.
The government introduced the Bill in response to the Grenfell Tower disaster and Dame Judith Hackitt’s subsequent Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety.
It marks the biggest overhaul in building safety regulations in nearly 40 years.
CIAT will continue to assist members and affiliates and the wider industry to prepare for the new regime.
