Updates to industry competence factsheet

UK government has updated the guidance document – Industry competence: factsheet.

This government factsheet shows what the government wants with regards to competency. The DLUHC say these regulations will impose a requirement on principal designers, principal contractors and anyone carrying out any design or building work to be competent for their roles. They also place a duty on those who appoint them to take reasonable steps to ensure that the people they appoint meet this requirement.

Professional and trade bodies are encouraged to develop suitable ways that their members in safety-critical roles can demonstrate their competence, with robust assurance processes, building on the industry-led work to date.
