Statement to the House of Commons by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government:

Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety - the Review is being led by Dame Judith Hackitt. Its purpose is to make recommendations that will ensure 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. It will examine building and fire safety regulations and related compliance and enforcement. The focus will be on multi occupancy high rise residential buildings.

Responses should be submitted by 13 October 2017 and the document can be found here:
