New national construction products regulator announced
The Government has committed to establish a national regulator for construction products as part of wider reforms to address systemic failings identified by the Hackitt Review.
It will operate within the Office for Product Safety and Standards which will be expanded and given £10m in funding to establish the new function.
The move is part of the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government’s work to address the culture within the construction industry.
