1. What is a Registered Signatory?
Companies, organisations and individuals can become Registered Signatories to the Building a Safer Future Charter. In doing so they can show their support for the Charter and its commitments. By signing up, Registered Signatories are also making a demonstration of their commitment to putting people’s safety first, above all other priorities.
Being a Registered Signatory is a commitment to become part of a learning community. It does not confer any rights to make claims about, nor is it an endorsement of the effectiveness of a company, organisation or individual’s approach to building safety. Promotion of being a Registered Signatory for example, using the logo or any other brand asset is not permitted.
2. What is the process for becoming a Registered Signatory?
Companies and organisations can apply to become Registered Signatories here. The application process involves the head of the organisation, e.g. Chief Executive, Managing Director or similar, signing a Charter Declaration, committing their organisation to supporting the Charter and its Commitments. Full details of the Commitments are available here.
