The Building Safety Act 2022 and the associated Building (Higher-Risk Buildings Procedures) (England) Regulations 2023 introduced significant information retention requirements through their ‘golden thread’ provisions. These apply to buildings defined as ‘higher risk’ in the legislation.

The golden thread comprises information to create a proper understanding of a building and consequently the steps needed to keep both the building and people safe. It is envisioned as a building’s ‘single source of truth’, and to avoid obsolescence and omission errors, it is not intended to be held across multiple sources or even duplicated (save back up).

The legislation stipulates that the golden thread information must be held digitally, and to protect both personal information and the security of the building, it must be held securely.Golden thread: BSA requirements create additional cyber exposure
