The Fire Safety Bill is one of two pieces of legislation the government has committed to bringing forward this year.
The Bill amends existing law to clarify dutyholder responsibility for the external wall systems, including cladding, and fire doors to individual flats, of multi-occupied residential buildings.
The government has also stated that the Bill will "provide a foundation for secondary legislation to take forward recommendations from the Grenfell Tower Inquiry phase one report". The recommendations set out building owners' and managers' responsibility for a number of areas, including lift inspections and evaluations.
The government is preparing to consult on the implementation of the recommendations later this year. In advance of this consultation, we're seeking feedback from our members on implementing the recommendations, to inform our work with the government.
We would therefore encourage our members to login below to download our briefing and respond to the questions by Friday 5 June.
