Press release: Dame Judith Hackitt hears from industry working groups

first_imgThis week, Dame Judith Hackitt hosted a meeting of the Chairs of the working groups which were formed following the Independent Review’s interim report publication in December and Summit meeting in January.The working groups were asked to consider how to develop elements of a more effective building regulations and fire safety system, taking forward the directions of travel identified by Dame Judith in her interim report.We had an overwhelming response for people to be involved. To ensure the groups were able to respond in a timely manner, it was necessary to restrict the size but group chairs were encouraged to consult as widely as possible when developing their advice.Dame Judith praised the commitment of the working groups, all of which have met multiple times over a 6-week period and thanked them for the quality of their contributions.She will now consider their advice as she develops the recommendations of her final report, intended to deliver the systemic overhaul and culture change required of the building regulations and fire safety system to make sure the people are safe, and feel safe, in the homes that they live in.Dame Judith Hackitt’s final report will be published in the spring.Dame Judith and the Independent Review Team would like to thank the following organisations and experts for their contributions.A list of participants in Dame Judith Hackitt’s January summit has also been published today.Working Group 1: Construction and DesignChairRachel White, Institute for Civil EngineersMembers Contact form https://forms.communit… Working Group 2: Occupation and MaintenanceChairNick Coombe, National Fire Chiefs CouncilMembers Working Group 4: CompetenceChairGraham Watts, Construction Industry CouncilMembers National Fire Chiefs Council Local Authority Building Control Construction Products Association National Housing Federation Health and Safety Executive Institution of Fire Engineers Digital Built Britain General enquiries: please use this number if you are a member of the public 030 3444 0000 Association of British Insurers Association of Residential Managing Agents British Institute of Facilities Management Health and Safety Executive Leasehold Advisory Service Local Government Association National Fire Chiefs Council National Housing Federation Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors Issued for and on behalf of Dame Judith Hackitt and the Independent Review team ACAI Build UK Construction Leadership Council Health and Safety Executive Institute of Fire Engineers Local Authority Building Control National Fire Chiefs Council National House Building Council Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors Royal Institute of British Architects 2 Marsham StreetLondonSW1P 4DF Email [email protected] Social media – MHCLG British Board of Agrement British Standards Institution Centre for Fire and Hazards Science, University of Central Lancashire Construction Products Association Fire Industry Association Fire Protection Association Institution of Fire Engineers National Fire Chiefs Council United Kingdom Accreditation Service BUILDUK CICAIR Chartered Institute of Building Construction Industry Training Board Engineering Council Fire Industry Association Fire Protection Association Institution of Fire Engineers Local Authority Building Control National Fire Chiefs Council Royal Institute of British Architects Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors School of Engineering University of Edinburgh Office address and general enquiries Working Group 6: Quality Assurance and ProductsChairDr. Debbie Smith, Building Research Establishment (BRE)Members Working Group 3: Regulations and GuidanceChairPeter Caplehorn, Construction Products AssociationMembers If your enquiry is related to COVID-19 please check our guidance page first before you contact us – https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-guidance-for-local-government.If you still need to contact us please use the contact form above to get in touch, because of coronavirus (COVID-19).
