Principles for Good Practice Building Regulation publication

In September 2020, IBQC issued its first publication: Principles for Good Practice Building Regulation, a collection of 10 key elements of successful building safety regimes. The Principles assume a foundation of public safety in building regulation and challenge jurisdictions to move beyond that to achieve regulatory regimes that are efficient and that encourage innovation. The authors posit that inefficient regulatory regimes encourage circumvention, and regulatory regimes that do not accommodate legitimate building innovations become irrelevant. Therefore, good practice building regulatory regimes must be a win-win-win proposition relative to safety, efficiency and innovation. The document succinctly defines each of the 10 principles and defines good practice in an easy-to-use listing of the components of each principle.

Principles for Good Practice Building Regulation can be downloaded for free from the IBQC website.
