Building Regulations Advisory Committee for Wales

We must consult the Building Regulations Advisory Committee for Wales when proposing changes to Building Regulations and related processes.

From 31 December 2011 the Welsh Government took on the responsibility for making and amending building regulations in Wales. Under section 14(5) of the Building Act 1984 the Welsh Ministers have a duty to appoint a Building Regulations Advisory Committee (BRACW).

The role of BRACW is to advise the Welsh Ministers on the making and amending of building regulations, and on other related matters in Wales. Members are appointed on a voluntary independent basis to represent particular areas/fields of expertise and experience.

The Chair of BRACW provides leadership for the committee and also brings similar skills and expertise as those required by the member posts. Members bring a range of skills and experience related to building and construction including architecture, consumer issues, building control, the needs of disabled people, property owners and sustainability.
