The Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety was announced by government in July 2017 following the Grenfell Tower tragedy and was led by Dame Judith Hackitt.
Its purpose was to make recommendations that will ensure:
- a sufficiently robust regulatory system for the future
- residents feel that the buildings they live in are safe and remain so
It examined building and fire safety regulations and related compliance and enforcement with the focus on multi-occupancy high-rise residential buildings.
An interim report was published on 18 December 2017 and the final report was published on 17 May 2018.
