Following the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy, Communities Secretary Sajid Javid announced an independent review of the building regulations and fire safety. The review was led by Dame Judith Hackitt, and focussed specifically on issues related to high-residential buildings, including:
- The regulatory system around design, construction and on-going management.
- Compliance and enforcement issues
- International Regulation and experience in this area
The recommendations are intended to apply to new and existing HRRB which are 10 storeys high or a wider set of buildings dependent on critical information. The recommendations of the report included a regulatory framework for multi occupancy HRRB, a new joint competent authority, a mandatory independent incident reporting systems, a new duty holder responsibility with CDM and a digital record.
