The BSR will publish the register of higher-risk buildings, as set out in Building Safety Act 2022. This forms the first set of comprehensive data available on higher-risk buildings meeting the criteria of at least 18 metres in height, or has at least seven storeys, and contains two or more residential units.

The Building Safety Regulator's charges have been calculated in accordance with HM Treasury's guidance in Managing Public Money, and were benchmarked against other regulators' charges. The Charging Scheme and published charges will be reviewed periodically to ensure they continue to be appropriate.
