Independent review of building regulations


The Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee has decided to follow-up its work on the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety by holding further evidence sessions on the immediate and longer-term changes needed to improve the safety of residential tower blocks, and how improvements can be applied more widely in the construction industry.

The Committee plans to hear from representatives from the construction industry, fire safety experts, and other stakeholders as well as the Government before the summer recess.

The Committee will seek to explore what immediate, specific changes need to be made to regulations to make residential tower blocks safe, and remain safe throughout their life-cycle. It will also look at how the longer term systemic and cultural changes proposed by the Independent Review can be implemented, and how these apply to the construction industry more widely.
