Raising competency across the built environment

The review of building safety and regulations that followed the Grenfell Tower fire highlighted a fragmented approach to - and a lack of consistency in - the processes and standards for assuring the competence of those working on buildings as a major flaw in the regulatory system.


To meet that challenge, the Competence Steering Group (CSG) published ‘Raising the Bar’ (later updated as ‘Setting the Bar’), which included creating a suite of national standards and supporting documents in its 67 recommendations.
