Key building information

Closed 12 Oct 2022

Opened 20 Jul 2022


This area of the consultation on implementing the new regime for occupied higher-risk buildings and relates to the key building information. 

The Government understands the importance of data and data analysis and how this can support better building safety. Data analysis enables greater knowledge of the characteristics of buildings and how these characteristics can inform building safety and building safety risks. It also enables understanding of trends and changes over time.

We propose to require the principal accountable person to provide the Building Safety Regulator with key building information about their building. The key building information will be high level information that will help the Building Safety Regulator to understand characteristics of all higher-risk buildings and to analyse and understand trends and risks across all buildings in scope.
