Consultation description

This call for evidence seeks views on the future technical guidance contained within Approved Document B (fire safety). It will be used to set the agenda, terms of reference and programme for the review and to identify what research may be needed to inform the review. The proposal is in line with the Secretary of State’s commitment to conducting a full-scale review of the guidelines commencing in the Autumn.

The department commissioned the Building Research Establishment to carry out a project on compartment size, resistance to fire and fire safety.

The project had 7 work streams - the reports are published on Gov.uk.
