There are many benefits to developing these standards.
Crucially, they will help to improve building safety. In this case, that means primarily the safety of residents but also of the workforce, including emergency responders.
The standards will make it easier for different parts of the built environment industry to work together by establishing agreed core principles, terminology, and requirements on competence. This will provide a shared understanding of roles along the delivery supply chain.
The impact goes further, the standards will provide a bridge to wider competence requirements being developed for the professional, technical and artisanal skills of those working in the built environment, raising the quality of work, the behaviour and the culture of individuals working in the built environment.
