Golden Thread Definition and Principles

In November 2020 the Building Regulations Advisory Committee (BRAC) established the BRAC golden thread working group, with full MHCLG and HSE support. The working group has been supporting government in developing golden thread policy, and acts as MHCLG’s primary source of industry expertise and advice on the golden thread.

Over the past few months the BRAC golden thread working group have worked closely with MHCLG and HSE to develop and agree the golden thread definition and principles, posted here with permission. They will be formally published by government during the passage of the Building Safety Bill.

The definition and principles are key to understanding the golden thread and will underpin the secondary legislation MHCLG plans to publish. This will be supported by guidance which will provide advice on implementation of the golden thread and how to meet the legislative requirements.
