DCLG - UPDATE on interim mitigation required pending remediation of cladding for building owners
This note supersedes Annex A to Melanie Dawes' letter of 22 June on Safety Checks following the Grenfell Tower fire. This letter was part of the previous advice DCLG issued under the Building Safety Programme.
This advice has been endorsed by the National Fire Chiefs Council, who will be circulating it separately to fire and rescue services.
This advice relates to circumstances in which it has been confirmed that the core ('filler') within Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) 1 in conjunction with other elements of the cladding system on your building, does not meet relevant requirements of the Building Regulations guidance.
In these circumstances, it is essential that you immediately implement the following interim mitigating measures, if you have not previously done so, to address the fire hazard and so ensure the safety of residents, pending any remediation of the cladding system needed. Local fire and rescue services will continue to work with building owners to ensure necessary mitigation measures are in place. In this connection, the relevant requirement of building regulations is that external walls shall adequately resist the spread of fire over the walls.
