Following the Grenfell Tower tragedy on 14th June 2017, the Government appointed Dame Judith Hackitt to undertake a full review of Building Safety Regs and Fire Safety in multiple occupancy buildings. The purpose was to make recommendations that will ensure – A sufficiently robust regulatory system for the future & residents feel that the buildings they live in are safe and remain so.

It examined building and fire safety regulations and related compliance and enforcement with the focus on multi-occupancy high-rise residential buildings. The final report was published on 17 May 2018.
