This paper presents the newly developed Framework for effective implementation of Building Policies, laws and Regulations (FEIBPLR) in developing sub-Sahara African countries. The framework is rooted within the RIBA Plan of work 2010 vastly used within the construction industry of several developed nations as well as on the literature submissions on policy development and theories of policy implementation. Also, in the development process consideration was given to the interactions amongst various stakeholders, culture and sociopolitical institutions. It is submitted that the analysis exercise of the data gathered has contributed in identifying the sources of vulnerabilities in the effectiveness of the implementation of the developed regulations and policies in the building construction sector. Those vulnerabilities include amongst others institutional corruption, ignorance of laws and policies, insufficient technical knowledge and confusing policies and confusing responsibilities. We conclude that the interaction between key stakeholders and the rigorous use of prescribed documents can strengthen the robustness of the implementation process and yield a better implementation and compliance rate in the building construction field. The instrument developed is characterised by five phases with integrated prescribed documents all facilitated by five identified complementary implementation drivers at each phase.
