Dame Judith Hackitt, in her report, Building a safer future, recommended the introduction of a golden thread to support dutyholders in designing, constructing and managing their buildings as holistic systems, taking into account building safety at all stages in the lifecycle. The government has committed to implementing Dame Judith Hackitts recommendations on the golden thread.

The Building Regulations Advisory Committee (BRAC) golden thread working group has brought together a cross section of industry to support officials in developing golden thread policy.

This report sets out the golden thread definition and principles which will inform ongoing work in developing secondary legislation and guidance and demonstrates how industry can support the government in delivering safer buildings.

The report also sets out the work of BRAC in supporting and challenging industry to deliver culture change. The government is looking to industry to lead culture change on the ground.
