Many fail­ures in UK sys­tem

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS -

A re­view into building reg­u­la­tions and fire safety has found “deep flaws”. The key find­ings in­clude:

• Roles and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties of those in­volved in building and main­tain­ing build­ings are un­clear;

• Reg­u­la­tions and guid­ance can be “am­bigu­ous and in­con­sis­tent”;

• Pro­cesses that drive com­pli­ance are weak and com­plex with poor record­keep­ing;

• Com­pe­tence across the sys­tem is patchy;

• The pro­ducttest­ing, la­belling and mar­ket­ing regime is opaque and in­suf­fi­cient;

• Voices of res­i­dents of­ten go un­heard.
