The final Report of Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety was published on 18 May 2018.
The review made 53 specific recommendations to the Government including the introduction of a new safety regime for High Rise Residential Buildings (HRRBs), the creation of a new super-regulator called the Joint Competent Authority (JCA), revised roles for Local Authority Building Control Bodies (LABC) and Approved Inspectors (AI) in relation to HRRBs and an overhauled regulatory framework based on delivering an outcome-based system.
In order to help CABE represent members’ views and feed back to Construction Industry Council (CIC) and the government, CABE launched a survey into the Hackitt Review recommendations in late June. The survey was open to all CABE members and lasted for two weeks.
The results to the report have now been published and are available to view.
CABE would like to thank all those Chartered Members who took the time to respond to this survey.
We would encourage all members to contribute to CABE surveys in order to ensure that your views are understood, and so that CABE can reflect these in our discussions with industry and Government – and if you can encourage others to respond to future consultations this will help strengthen our ability to represent member views.
