Consultation launched on built environment competence framework specification - UPDATED23 October 2020

BSI has launched a consultation on the first iteration of a new standard called: Built Environment – Overarching Framework for Competence of Individuals - Specification.

Developed using BSI’s new #BSIFlex process, the framework will provide a set of core principles of competence of individuals working within the built environment. It is broadly relevant to any role in the assessing, procuring, designing, constructing, inspection, maintenance, management or operation of higher-risk buildings. This includes technical and non-technical roles, and individuals working under their own authority as well as under the supervision of other competent individuals. It is also intended to span a wide range of levels of competence from basic awareness to very detailed application by subject specialists.

BSi says this is intended to be used by professional groups, trade associations, trades or any other group from relevant built environment actors looking to develop or achieve recognition for a relevant competence framework. It is anticipated that those frameworks will then be subject to review by a committee on industry competence working under the aegis of the building safety regulator.

The consultation can be downloaded, and more information is available, via the link below.

UPDATED: the consultation closed on 20 October.
