Detail of outcome
This is the summary of responses and the government response to the consultation on amendments to statutory guidance on assessments in lieu of tests in Approved Document B (fire safety).
We are seeking views on proposed amendments to Approved Document B (statutory guidance on fire safety) that would restrict the use of assessments in lieu of tests (also known as desktop studies).
This is in line with our commitment to implement the corresponding recommendation in Dame Judith Hackitt’s interim report on Building Regulations and Fire Safety.
