The eligibility criteria of external wall systems for the Building Safety Fund are set out in Annex A - Technical Information to the Building Safety Fund Prospectus which is available at: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/887231/Annex_A_-_technical_information.pdf.

If a zinc panel is part of an external wall system that meets the criteria in Annex A then, subject to the building meeting the other Building Safety Fund criteria such as height, it could be eligible for funding.
