- Established a national database of competencies.
- Launched an insurance backed scheme for local authorities to share people with specialist competencies.
- Updated the LABC Partner Authority Scheme to provide ‘primary authorities’ for multi-site developers.
- Developed new performance standards for the functions only local authority building control teams undertake e.g. enforcement, dangerous structures, safety at sports grounds and demolition.
- Established a forum for the nations of the UK so that all UK public service building standards professionals can share technical policy, registered details, field research and policy development.
- Developed new digital learning resources to enable self-study, distance learning and recorded CPD specific to building control standards.
- Finally, we are creating a cross-industry, cross-profession practitioner’s committee to study and review building practices.
