Other legislation

On 31 December 2011, we became responsible for new powers and functions related to the Building Regulations.

This includes most of the powers in:

  • the Building Act 1984
  • the Sustainable and Secure Buildings Act 2004
  • the Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Act 2006.
The functions in secondary legislation made under these Acts will also be transferred to us. These include functions under the Building Regulations 2010 and the Building (Approved Inspectors, etc.) Regulations 2010.

Relevant legislation is available from the sources below.
