It is a legal requirement under the Building Safety Act 2022 for all high-rise residential buildings 18 metres tall or higher, or at least 7 storeys tall, with two or more residential units to be registered with the Building Safety Regulator by 1 October 2023.
The Principal Accountable Person (PAP) for each building, or someone authorised by them, is required to complete the registration process.
The registration service is now open and the fee to register each building is £251.
