Meet the CROSS-UK team

The CROSS-UK team is responsible for managing confidential safety reports and for disseminating safety information to help professionals make structures safer.

They work alongside the voluntary CROSS-UK Expert Panels.


CROSS-UK Designated People

Designated People are the members of our team who manage the confidential safety reports that CROSS-UK receive. They are the only people who have access to the reporter’s personal information and the original information submitted as part of their report.

Read more about the responsibilities of our Designated People

The responsibilities of our Designated People include:

  • Anonymising confidential safety reports sent to CROSS-UK before sharing the reports with others in CROSS and before publication on the CROSS website. This includes removing the reporter’s personal information and any other identifiable details in the report.

  • Communicating with individuals who have sent a safety report to CROSS-UK while their report is being processed

  • Sending the final anonymised report back to the reporter for comments before it is published on the CROSS website

If you want to find out more about our Designated People, please contact where your email will be treated in confidence.
