Grenfell Tower Fire – the Consequences for Regulation

The fire at Grenfell Tower in London was a catastrophe which resulted in the deaths of 72 people. The conclusions from the legal Inquiry into the circumstances of the fire will not be published for some time. In parallel was the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety commissioned by government and published in May 2018. This review, by Dame Judith Hackitt, makes 50 recommendations for a sufficiently robust regulatory system for the future to ensure that buildings are safe. This presentation will discuss the regulatory implications of the report along with the measures that are being taken to improve safety. Other recent major failures and fires will also be discussed.
