Question for Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government

UIN 98980, tabled on 5 October 2020

To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, what assessment he has made of the effect of the level of qualified fire engineers on buildings that fall out of warranty while awaiting an inspection for their external wall fire review assessment.

The EWS1 form and process is not a government regulatory requirement. It is not a building safety certificate. If an assessment reveals issues that might fall under the warranty, these should be raised by the leaseholder or building owner in the usual way.
