Briefing Note – Mandatory Occurrence Reporting and Resident Engagement

April 24, 2024

Mandatory Occurrence Reporting and Resident Engagement

This Briefing Note is for principal designers, principal contractors and accountable persons with regards to the requirement to now report incidents or risks of structural failure, or the spread of fire to the Building Safety Regulator (BSR).

Mandatory occurrence reporting (MOR) is designed to help report structural flaws and fire risks that might arise at any point throughout the life cycle of a building which could cause a significant fire event.

Building safety refers to the measures that are in place to protect residents in buildings, for example, measures to reduce and mitigate risks, such as the spreading of a fire, structural failures and gas and electric hazards. The building safety measures aim to reduce the seriousness of an incident if one occurs.

As a resident in a high-rise building, you have a say in building safety decisions and this strategy sets out how we will involve you in these building safety decisions.
