Monitoring, assurance and enforcement

The Building Safety Regulator (BSR) uses a risk-based and intelligence-led approach to assess the performance of building control bodies (BCBs).

BCBs and registered building inspectors (RBIs) may need to:

  • provide regular reports and data returns to BSR
  • fulfil BSR’s information requests
  • cooperate with any investigation or auditing activities

Our approach to monitoring and assurance is:

  • proportionate
  • targeted
  • transparent
  • consistent

BSR will set out arrangements for the collection of appropriate data.

BCBs will need to have systems and controls in place to ensure the information they identify, store and update is suitable.

The inspection selection criteria explains how we prioritise the inspection of building control bodies.


BSR will have a series of escalating sanctions and enforcement measures to maintain standards and deal with poor performance.

The investigation procedure statement sets out how we’ll conduct investigations into the building control profession. We’ll also publish our findings on the performance of building control bodies.
