Building regulations and fire safety review

The formal call for evidence has opened for the independent review of building regulations and fire safety

14 September 2017

Led by Dame Judith Hackitt, the review will make recommendations to ensure there is a sufficiently robust regulatory system for the future, examining building and fire safety regulations and related compliance and enforcement.

The deadline for responses is 13 October. You can find full details on the Government website. An interim report will be published in November with full recommendations made in spring 2018.

The Federation will be submitting a response and is keen to hear the views of as many members as is possible within the restricted timescale. We will host a webinar to discuss the key areas of the review - date and time to be confirmed soon.

In the meantime, if you have any thoughts you would like to share, please get in touch via housingsafety@housing.org.uk. If your organisation is making its own submission, we would welcome seeing this too.
