Building Safety: The Act, Regulation and Standards – What Next?

Building Safety: The Act, Regulation and Standards – What Next?

About this event

Following the tragic Grenfell Tower disaster, building safety standards and regulations have been under close scrutiny. In April the Building Safety Act became law. New regulations are coming into play in June and new standards are also on their way.

To avoid being in breach of the law, you will need to be up to date with the latest changes. Join three legal and technical experts for a look at the new rules. Including a look at the new act, regulations and BS 9991 on Fire Safety in Buildings.

The session will open with a set of talks on building safety and the latest standards, followed by a panel discussion and an opportunity to put your questions to the panel.
