Architects to face post-Grenfell health and safety test

RIBA's 66 Portland Place headquarters

Mandatory test to be introduced next year

Every chartered member of the RIBA will be required to pass a health and safety test, the institute has announced.

The mandatory test will be introduced from next year and architects will be given a year to pass before renewing their membership for the 2021 subscription year.

The RIBA said the decision was a direct result of the Hackitt Review, as well as Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recommendations following the introduction of CDM 2015.
