BAFE are proud to announce that Chris Auger, Director of Schemes, has accepted an invitation from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to be a member of the Interim Industry Competence Committee (IICC).

The committee has been established to act in an advisory position which will support the HSE’s Building Safety Regulator (BSR). The committee will aid in developing new regulatory measures regarding life safety within the new and current built environment.

Chris Auger expressed his thoughts commenting: “I am extremely honoured to have been invited onto the IICC which I have gratefully accepted. The work of the IICC will play an important role in supporting the shadow Building Safety Regulator and raising competence across the built environment and fire sectors”.

Stephen Adams, Chief Executive – BAFE, added: “Alongside his role within BAFE, Chris is involved with a number of the Hackitt working groups and committees. With this brings a wide range of knowledge and understanding of the current fire safety industry regarding evidencing competency and where this can improve to support the work of our quality registered companies. We look forward to stronger regulation of the fire safety industry”
