BSR register now open for applications

Following the announcement that Building Control will be a regulated profession, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has announced that the service for registering competence is now open.

From April 2024, building control professionals will have to demonstrate their competence and register with the Building Safety Regulator (BSR) to perform Building Control work in England. The BSR, led by the HSE, sets rigorous standards that all inspectors must meet. This means that every individual practicing in this field will be held to the same high bar, guaranteeing a consistent level of competence and code of conduct across the board.

There are several classes of registration, which enable a Registered Building Inspector to work on different types of building. Please read the guidance about classes to decide which one to apply for.

Class 1 has no competency criteria. To be registered at any other class, you must use one of BSR’s authorised schemes to independently certify your competence. After you pass an assessment from your chosen provider you will be given a unique certificate number. You will need to provide this number to BSR during your registration to complete the process.

Full guidance on what you will need to be able to register can be found here.
