On 6 June 2019, the Government launched a consultation on reforms to the Building Regulations which follows on from the recommendations made by Dame Judith Hackitt in her Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety (‘Hackitt Review’).

The consultation spans five broad areas: the scope of the new regime, the introduction of a system of dutyholders, mechanisms for keeping residents informed, a more effective regulatory and accountability framework and strengthened enforcement and sanctions.

In this article, Jo Lewis, Michael O’Brien and Priya Thakrar highlight the key points from these areas and provide commentary on the potential implications of the consultation.
