The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) has just issued a new Code of Quality Management, following an increased number of incidents emphasising the effects of construction defects around the UK. The new code aims to aid construction professionals in creating safe, quality buildings in future.

After the Grenfell fire in June 2017, there came an urgency to provide a singular code of reference to identify the main issues preventing quality in construction. The CIOB’s Construction Quality Commission worked with members of the CIOB to create this code which Paul Nash FCIOB, Chairman of the Commission hopes will "provide practitioners with the tools and processes needed to deliver quality on construction projects."
