Building Safety Registration Update 2

14 Feb Update - we have had some further discussion with HR colleagues. We believe that the points which you have raised have been fully considered and will shortly issue our FAQ in response via email, as stated below.

We are waiting for one answer regarding the registration fee for year 2. Our point is that this should be considered as a professional registration, and therefore covered by NHBC in common with the current policy on supporting two registrations.

Once have a response to this, we will add this to the FAQ.

8 Feb Update - we have had responses to some questions which we raised but discussion is ongoing. We have been told that no FAQ will be issued by the business, so we will compile one as soon as we are able and circulate this. As this is an external website, the FAQ will be circulated internally via email. We do have some positive news though:

  1. It was the intention that the recoverable amount will reduce by 1/24 for each month during the 2 year period. This was not made clear in the Docusign letter but will be applied.
  2. Ongoing registration fees outside of the 2 year period are not subject to a claw back.

Original post - We have been made aware of various concerns and questions regarding recent communication regarding BSR. while I understand that you may have been directed to your Line Manager or others in the management chain, we are raising your concerns at the highest level.
