Building Regulations Advisory Committee for Wales
We must consult the Building Regulations Advisory Committee for Wales when proposing changes to Building Regulations and related processes.
In the United Kingdom most building work is controlled by regulations. Previously the Building Regulations Advisory Committee (BRAC) advised on proposed changes to the Building Regulations in England and Wales. BRAC are sponsored by the Department for Communities and Local Government.
Following the devolution of the Building Regulations to Wales the Building Regulations Advisory Committee for Wales (BRACW) was established on 01 January 2012. It will advise us on proposed changes to Building Regulations in Wales. It follows the Code of Practice for Scientific Advisory Committees (CoPSAC).
The Code of Practice sets out good practice and covers:
- working practices of committees
- members’ rights and responsibilities
- the role of the chair.
