Over the last 2 to 3 years, the industry has gone over huge changes and is continuing to do so at a great rate. And change usually brings its grey areas and confusion.

As the BSA comes into play, organisations and stakeholders will be relying on competent manufacturers and the supply chain to provide them with detailed, compliant information early on in the design process.
It will be a learning curve to understand all the changes and the many challenges that we will all have to face from the Building Safety Act. This is why it will be increasingly important for early collaboration from the whole industry to work things out together. However, despite the challenges, it is clear there is a positive cultural change towards building a safer future.
