THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar will discuss the future for building regulations in England.
It will provide an opportunity for policymakers and stakeholders to assess the most effective ways forward for improving the safety and standards of buildings in England.
Delegates will discuss the Government’s recently published implementation plan which aims to support the development of a more effective regulatory and accountability framework as called for by the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety led by Dame Judith Hackitt.
The report also commits to taking forward all the recommendations of the review, and delegates will discuss priorities and challenges for implementation and implications for local authorities, residents, the construction industry and other key stakeholders.
The seminar will provide an opportunity to discuss the work of the Industry Safety Steering Group and updates from the Government’s Building Safety Programme, as well as what more should be done to give residents a greater say, put in place an effective testing and inspection regime, and create a clearer record of information for high-rise residential buildings.
The agenda also looks at the implementation and compliance issues for building firms, as well as what will be needed to bring about the necessary changes to business culture and regulatory oversight in the building sector.
We also expect discussion to reflect key updates from the Grenfell Tower Inquiry, and next steps for policy.
