The department has received over 150 enquiries from private residential building owners about the testing process since the offer of tests was made on 21st June.</p><p>The number of high rise buildings from which cladding samples have failed a combustibility test at the Building Research Establishment is now 190 across 51 local authority areas. The department has not made an estimate of the number of private rented sector properties with Aluminium Composite (ACM) cladding. Private Sector Landlords are responsible for the safety of their buildings. We encourage them to use the testing facilities offered by the government.</p><p /><p><br></p>
