RIBA reaction to Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety

02 August 2017

RIBA President Jane Duncan says:

“The RIBA welcomes the Government's decision to order an Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety and we look forward to seeing the full terms of reference. However, the suggestion from the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) announcement that the review will look at ‘building regulations and fire safety with a particular focus on high rise residential buildings’ is a concern for us. It is essential that the review enables a comprehensive, transparent and fundamental reappraisal of Approved Document B in its entirety – not just those aspects relating to high rise residential buildings. Anything less risks missing potential gaps in our building regulations that urgently need to be addressed.”
