Call for evidence issued
The government has issued a call for evidence as it begins the independent review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety in the wake of the fire at Grenfell Tower in June.
The review, which was announced in July and is being led by Dame Judith Hackett, is aiming to make recommendations to ensure the regulatory system is robust enough for the future and to provide further assurance to residents that the buildings they live in are safe and will remain so.
The review is interested in anything that may impact on the lifecycle of a building and fire safety and is particularly interested in hearing from respondents on aspects of the current regulatory system, which are working well and those which could be reformed.
