New partnership with LABC formed


The SGSA is pleased to announce a new working partnership with Local Authority Building Control (LABC).


The partnership will see the SGSA work with LABC to develop the professionalism and competence of individuals engaged in the assessment sports grounds safety and safety certification through excellence in the design, construction, occupation and onward management of buildings.

In addition the partnership will see the SGSA support LABC in the development and delivery of assessments that lead to recognition of the higher level professional role as regulators assessing sports grounds safety and safety certification.  It will also provide independent oversight of LABC’s, standards and learning on matters relating to sports grounds safety and safety certification.

LABC represents all local authority building control teams in England and Wales. It provides advice and services, through a network of professional surveyors, to property owners and professionals to ensure buildings are safe, healthy and efficient, and in conformity with building regulations.
