The Building Advisory Committee (BAC)

The Building Safety Regulator (BSR) will advise government on the safety and standards of all buildings. The Building Advisory Committee (BAC) will provide advice and information to BSR. BAC is being set up in accordance with the reforms set out within the Building Safety Act 2022

Responsibilities and membership

BAC was created in December 2022 to meet the requirements of the Building Safety Act 2022 and provides advice and information to the BSR on new and emerging issues across the built environment. BAC will also provide leadership across industry and drive change.

BAC consists of a high-level steering group, underpinned by separate working groups focussing on specific areas of work. Members of BAC are drawn from many different parts of industry and have varied skills and expertise, including fire safety, structural safety, the construction industry, housing and building services engineering.

Meetings of the BAC steering group take place on at least four occasions during the course of each year, with working group meetings taking place as required to ensure effective delivery of their work.

We expect that committee members will be knowledgeable in their respective fields and have a passion for improving standards in the built environment.
