unstar this property answer text <p>The Department published in April 2019 a Frequently asked Question on the Government website one of which answer the question “How do the Building (Amendment) Regulations 2018 affect buildings undergoing remediation?”</p><p>The requirement is that building work on such buildings must be carried out so that only materials which achieve European Classification A1 or A2-s1, d0 become part of an external wall or specified attachment (as defined in regulation 2) unless covered by one of the exemptions in the regulations.</p><p>This means that materials which are already part of the external wall, or are existing specified attachments, and are not becoming part of the wall are not covered by the ban (unless there is a change of use). However, during this process care must be taken to ensure that the building is no less compliant in relation to building regulation requirements than before the work was carried out (e.g. cavity barrier).</p><p>The full list of frequently asked questions is available at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/building-amendment-regulations-2018-frequently-asked-questions/building-amendment-regulations-2018-frequently-asked-questions" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/building-amendment-regulations-2018-frequently-asked-questions/building-amendment-regulations-2018-frequently-asked-questions</a>.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>On 18 July 2019 the Independent Expert Advisory Panel (IAEP) issued an advice note to building owners. In this advice note the IAEP states the following:</p><p> </p><p><em>“The view of the Expert Panel is that the level of risk from unsafe HPL systems is not as high a risk as unsafe systems using ACM Category 3 panels. Therefore, the Expert Panel remains clear that the immediate removal of unsafe systems using ACM Category 3 panels should be an absolute priority of focus for building owners and the sector, followed by immediate action to remediate unsafe HPL systems. For the avoidance of doubt both the removal of unsafe ACM Category 3 panels and action to remediate unsafe HPL systems should be carried out as soon as possible.”</em></p><p> </p><p>The full advice note is available at <a href="https://gbr01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fassets.publishing.service.gov.uk%2Fgovernment%2Fuploads%2Fsystem%2Fuploads%2Fattachment_data%2Ffile%2F818184%2FAdvice_note_on_use_of_HPL_panels_in_external_wall_systems.pdf&amp;data=02%7C01%7CCharles-Elie.Romeyer%40communities.gov.uk%7C3985d5850bdf4c4a8cc708d70e7ede45%7Cbf3468109c7d43dea87224a2ef3995a8%7C0%7C0%7C636993810367162667&amp;sdata=FT2Xkf%2BNFfUXmD%2F0%2FWdxtvozJg4d3KitxBTL5UxkccY%3D&amp;reserved=0" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/818184/Advice_note_on_use_of_HPL_panels_in_external_wall_systems.pdf</a></p>
