Key Building Information

'Submit your Key Building Information' graphic

Key Building Information (KBI) can now be entered on the registration portal.

As part of the process to register high-rise residential buildings in England, there is a requirement to supply KBI to the Building Safety Regulator.


KBI is a set of information needed about each high-rise building in order to assess and properly manage the risks of fire spread or structural failure. It can be submitted at the same time as completing the application to register a building or at a later date.


All registration applications and KBI must be completed on the portal by 1 October 2023.

Guidance on registering buildings with multiple structures

The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) has published guidance to help register buildings with multiple structures.

If your building has two or more structures that are attached, you need to assess the 'independent section' criteria to see if they count as one building or should be registered separately.


Read the guidance on building definition and independent sections 

Regulating the building control profession

The Code of Conduct for Registered Building Inspectors (RBIs) and Professional Conduct Rules for Registered Building Control Approvers (RBCAs) has now been published.

All Building Inspectors, public and private sector, must comply with the Code of Conduct coming into force in April 2024. It sets out the standards of professional conduct and practice required of individuals performing their role as a building inspector registered with the Building Safety Regulator.


The Professional Conduct Rules apply to Registered Building Control Approvers. They set out standards of professional conduct and practice expected of Building Control Approvers in the private sector registered with Building Safety Regulator coming into force in April 2024.
