Cladding Update

Cladding Update

The extended part 2 deadline has now passed. This means that all building owners that had progressed to part 2 should have uploaded their completed Form 34 ‘Building Industry Professional Statement’ to the Safer Buildings Combustible Cladding Checklist and finished part 2.

What has happened so far?

The cladding regulation came into effect on 1st October 2018.

Part 1 required building that met a certain criteria to register using an online system and complete the Safer Buildings checklist.   The checklist was made up of four questions and upon completion of the checklist, depending on your answers provided, the online system would notify you if the building had checked out and no further action was required or the building was required to proceed to part 2 or move directly to part 3 should the building be known to have combustible cladding.

Part 2 was put in place as an additional safeguard so that the government could be certain that all potential cases of combustible cladding were identified.  This process involved completing an additional checklist and statement by a certified industry professional such as a Building Certifier, Architect or Fire Engineer.

What’s next?

Part 3a – The next deadline that is approaching is 31 October 2019.  This will require all buildings that are progressing to part 3 to engage a fire engineer and register the fire engineer’s details on the Combustible Cladding Checklist.

Part 3b will then need to be completed before the 3 May 2021.  This will require the fire engineer to complete a building fire safety risk assessment and statement.  These two documents will then need to be uploaded and the online checklist will then need to be filled out and completed.
