Building Ministers endorsed the 2017-18 Business Plan on 30 June 2017. To help address the risks associated with high rise building fires the Board, at the direction of the Building Ministers' Forum, will be focussed on expediting measures to help prevent the non-compliant use of cladding on buildings. Ministers also identified a number of priority projects for analysis by the Board including accessible housing, prevention of jumping suicides from heights in buildings and sanitary facilities for people with profound disabilities.

Detailed information about the Board’s other priorities such as increasing the use of performance, development of new and improved education material and the launch of both revised product certification schemes, can also be found in the 2017-18 Business Plan.
