Grenfell Towers review update

Former Health & Safety Executive chair Dame Judith Hackitt says that the construction industry’s regulatory system is not fit for purpose and contractors are taking short cuts, with little or no quality monitoring. In essence, contractors are out of control. Dame Judith Hackitt was appointed by government to lead an independent review of building regulations and fire safety following the lethal Grenfell Tower fire in June. She has published her interim findings today (18 Decmber 2017)

The interim report sets out six broad areas for change:

  • ensuring that regulation and guidance is risk-based, proportionate and unambiguous
  • clarifying roles and responsibilities for ensuring that buildings are safe
  • improving levels of competence within the industry
  • improving the process, compliance and enforcement of regulations
  • creating a clear, quick and effective route for residents’ voices to be heard and listened to
  • improving testing, marketing and quality assurance of products used in construction.
