DCLG invites applications for Chair of Building Regulation Advisory Committee

The Department for Communities and Local Government is looking to appoint up to 12 members of the Building Regulations Advisory Committee (BRAC) from April 2015. They also wish to appoint a chair to the committee.

BRAC was established to advise the Secretary of State on the exercise of his/her powers to make Building Regulations in England and Wales and on other related matters. The Secretary of State has a statutory obligation to consult BRAC before making Building Regulations containing substantive requirements. 

In practice, the views of BRAC are usually sought on all relevant policy and technical matters related to the Building Regulations. BRAC is therefore an important sounding board for matters directly affecting the building and, in a sense, the wider construction industry, usually prior to formal consultations with all stakeholders.

BRAC members are appointed on an independent basis to represent particular areas/fields of expertise and experience, rather than as specific delegates of particular organisations.
