Call for new members for the Building Regulations Advisory Committee (BRAC)

BRAC is an advisory Non-Departmental Public Body (NDPB) of the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG).

The Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) has issued a call for new members for the Building Regulations Advisory Committee (BRAC).

 

BRAC is an advisory Non-Departmental Public Body (NDPB) of the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG). It has been designated as a Scientific Advisory Committee under the Government’s Code of Practice for Scientific Advisory Committees 2001, and BRAC members work closely with officials in the Building Regulation Technical Policy Division to provide a sounding broad for policy development.  This could include chairing or involvement in BRAC working groups to assist in the development of proposals to amend or introduce new regulations, and supporting statutory guidance (in the Approved Documents), facilitating wider engagement with industry to ensure working group technical committees have high quality expert representation, and helping to develop research proposals and projects to build the evidence base to support changes to the Building Regulations.  Most recently, this has included work to support changes to fire safety requirements and research into overheating in new homes.

 

Below is the link to the request from MCHLG which also provides further information about the Committee and the role that members will play, along with how to apply for a post.
