star this property answer text <p>The testing process for samples of cladding is underway. The testing service is available to landlords in the private rented sector free of charge, though they may choose to use another service. Where samples fail the test we would expect landlords to take any necessary action to inform tenants, and implement interim measures to ensure the safety of residents. We will update figures for specific areas on our website in due course.</p> more like this

If the screening tests indicate that such cladding would not meet the limited combustibility requirements of the current Building Regulations guidance, it is for landlords in consultation with the fire and rescue service and other experts to determine, and take, the best course of action, communicating closely with residents. My Department has issued advice on the interim mitigating measures landlords should implement.
