Last chance to respond to Independent Review of Building Regs and Fire Safety

BWF is making a final call for evidence for its response to the independent review of the Building Regulations, led by Dame Judith Hackitt.

Last chance to respond to Independent Review of Building Regs and Fire SafetyThe independent review will examine:

– the regulatory system around the design, construction and on-going management of buildings in relation to fire safety

– related compliance and enforcement issues

– international regulation and experience in this area

As part of the review, Dame Judith will consult the Buildings Regulations Advisory Committee – which advises the government on changes to building regulations– as well as the construction and housing industry, the fire sector, international experts, MPs and the public.

BWF has been working directly and with other trade bodies to ensure a consistent response. Relevant key points will also be drawn from the Fire Door Manifesto.

A call for evidence has already been circulated to BWF Certifire members and BWF members have a final opportunity to response and we would be grateful if you could share any comments/experiences and perceptions against the topics raised so that we can incorporate them in our work.
