Building Regulations Advisory Committee

Volume 573: debated on Thursday 9 January 2014

I am today pleased to announce the publication of the triennial review of the Building Regulations Advisory Committee. Triennial reviews are part of the Government’s commitment to ensuring that all non-departmental public bodies continue to have regular challenge on their remit and governance arrangements. A copy of this report will be placed in the Library of the House.

The review concluded that there was an ongoing need for the committee’s function to support the Government’s agenda and priorities for changes to building regulations both regulatory and increasingly deregulatory. Although a number of other possible models were considered for delivering this function, its current form as an advisory non-departmental public body was felt to be the most appropriate and represent good value for money while meeting the principles of effective corporate governance.
