Building System Insights Programme

The purpose of the Building System Insights Programme (BSIP) is to conduct strategic research and evaluation, which provides sector intelligence and insights, to inform the implementation and effective delivery of the Building System Regulatory Strategy.

The generation of these insights will inform the direction of the strategy, tell us what activities we need to prioritise and engage in, and whether what we are doing is making a difference.

The embedding of these insights will ensure that our work remains relevant and evidence-based, and that we continue to be an efficient and effective steward of the building regulatory system.
