Behind the Façade Webinar: The Key Regulations

Counsel to the Grenfell Tower Inquiry, Emma Hynes and George Eyre introduce the regulations governing the construction of façades, both before and after the tragic fire. They discuss the different routes to compliance for products that make up a façade, including industry debates on interpretation of statutory guidance Approved Document B. They also discuss the regulations that govern buildings in occupation, particularly the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, and provide an update on changes in regulation which may be on the horizon.
