The Government announced on 28 July that, following the Grenfell Tower tragedy, Dame Judith Hackitt will chair an independent review to examine current building regulations and fire safety with a particular focus on high rise residential buildings. It will report jointly to the Communities Secretary and the Home Secretary, and will examine:

  • the regulatory system around the design, construction and on-going management of buildings in relation to fire safety;
  • related compliance and enforcement issues;

  • international regulation and experience in this area.
