A new code of practice for the fire risk appraisal of external walls and cladding of multi-occupancy residential buildings has been published by the BSI.

The code has been developed to support the changes to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 brought about by the Fire Safety Act 2021, which provides for the fire performance of exterior walls and cladding to be a material consideration.
