Welcome to the IBQC

A pre-eminent International Centre of Excellence in terms of the identification of building regulatory systems and regimes that are international exemplars.

Latest News: IBQC Formally launches the new publication – Building Product Performance Part 1 – Discussion Paper and the Announcement of Two Workshops on the paper itself

The International Building Quality Centre (IBQC) this week released a discussion paper about building product performance. The discussion paper is the product of an IBQC working group led by Dame Judith Hackitt, with participation from preeminent experts from the UK, Australia and the USA. The paper is will kick off a dialogue about whether the mechanisms currently in place globally to regulate the performance of building products, up to and including the entire building itself, are fit-for-purpose.

In order to facilitate participation in a global dialogue about the problem statement and examples of regulatory successes that could potentially address the problems reported in Part 1, the IBQC will offer a free two-session webinar with several of the working group members as well as building product safety experts. Registration is now open for the sessions, which will be offered on May 12, 2022 at 8am UTC and 4pm UTC, which should enable interested parties from around the world to join at a time that is most convenient for them. Prior to each workshop, global stakeholders are invited to share their thoughts and questions to be addressed at one or both of the webinars by completing the online form that has been set up for this purpose.

Further, you can view an introductory video of the paper by Dame Judith Hackitt and Adjunct Professor (Chair of the IBQC) at

We look forward to your feedback and participation.
