Guidance documents aims to boost competence standards in residential occupied sector

The Building Safety Alliance has published two documents aimed at bolstering competence standards and fostering recruitment of qualified professionals within the residential occupied sector.

The BSAS 01:2024 Organisational Capability Management System Standard and Guidelines outlining competence expectations for stakeholders involved in specifying, procuring, and managing services for occupied high-rise and higher-risk residential buildings in England aims to serve as a resource for organisations seeking to enhance competence within their building safety functions.

These initiatives are said to meet the requirements set by the new building safety regime and its regulations pertaining to competence.

The Building Safety Alliance added that stakeholders across the sector should demonstrate their commitment to upholding rigorous standards as clients are increasingly demanding tangible proof of competence management.

Anthony Taylor, Building Safety Alliance said: “The Alliance wish to thank all those who have given their valuable time and knowledge to developing common approaches to the requirements of the new regulatory regime.

“We would also extend our thanks to those representatives of BSR and DLUHC who acted as observers to the groups who have been developing these documents over many months.”

The Standard is said to next become part of the British Standards Institute (BSI) standards development process, towards a Publicly Available Specification (PAS) or full British Standard (BS). Both documents are available free of charge.

The Standard and the Guidelines documents are available through the Building Safety Alliance website.
