The Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety has now been completed by Dame Judith Hackitt. Its purpose is to make recommendations that will ensure 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 examines building and fire safety regulations and related compliance and enforcement, with a focus on high rise residential buildings.
The final report sets out over 50 recommendations for government as to how to deliver a more robust regulatory system for the future.
