Where a non-Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) sample has been submitted as part of the Government's ACM screening programme the sender has been notified that the sample was not ACM and that it will not be tested under the screening programme. We have issued guidance to building owners on non-ACM cladding systems and have commissioned research to investigate types of non-ACM cladding material.
