  • Government calls for submissions for building regs review

    In the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower tragedy, the Government has published a call for evidence for the independent review of building regulations and fire safety.

    Led by Dame Judith Hackitt, the review will examine buildings and fire safety regulations, plus other related compliance enforcement, focussing on multi-occupancy, high-rise residential buildings.

    Recommendations will make sure that “we have a sufficiently robust regulatory system for the future and to provide further assurance to residents that the complete system is working to ensure the buildings they live in are safe and remain so”.

    Reporting to Communities Secretary Sajid Javid and Home Secretary Amber Rudd, all responses should be submitted by October 13th 2017 to buildingregulationsandfiresafetyreview@communities.gsi.gov.uk

    An interim report will be submitted in autumn 2017 and a final report submitted in spring 2018.
