The UK Parliament are considering a Building Safety Bill (the Bill). The Bill addresses the issues identified in the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety. The Bill affects Wales and will enable the Welsh Ministers to modernise the design and construction process as set out in the Welsh Government’s White Paper: Safer Buildings in Wales.

The Building Act 1984 and related building regulations are devolved. This means that the Bill will be the subject of scrutiny by the Senedd Cymru as a Legislative Consent Motion.
