Registration of the Building Control Profession – Transitional Arrangements

Philip White, Director of Building Safety for the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has written to the Building Control industry outlining a competence assessment extension period for Registered Building Inspectors, who meet set criteria. The extension period is 13 weeks from 6 April to 6 July 2024.

Experienced building control professionals who are not trainees but have not yet completed a competence assessment will have the scope of their registration temporarily extended provided they meet the following criteria:

  • They are an existing building control professional;
  • They are registered as a Class 1 RBI by 6 April 2024;
  • They are enrolled in, and in the process of having their competency assessed through, one of the BSR approved competence assessment schemes by 6 April 2024; and
  • A scheme provider has not told them that they have not passed their competency assessment for a second time.

This is not an opportunity to delay completing registration as an RBI and there will be no extension to these arrangements. Professionals who are not registered by 6 April 2024 will not benefit from the extension period and will not be able to continue to work on regulated building control activities.
