Nothing is more important than keeping people safe. That is why we established the Building Safety Programme, which has been working with local authorities and building owners to identify properties that might be at risk and ensure that all building owners take necessary remedial action to improve the fire safety of tower blocks as swiftly as possible. We have offered free screening tests at the Building Research Establishment (BRE) to all owners of buildings over 18 metres with Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding to establish whether the materials submitted are of limited combustibility, and we have provided a note to assist building owners undertaking remediation work.
A variety of interim safety measures have also been put in place so that everyone is kept safe. A list of these measures can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/648775/Update_on_Interim_Mitigation_Measures_290917.pdf
