The Building Regulations and Fire Safety Conference

In view of the continuous uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and our duty of care towards delegates, speakers, sponsors and staff, we have decided to postpone the event to a later date in the year.  

It is a decision we have not taken lightly. However, we believe it is the most appropriate one in the face of the current situation.  

We are now working to set a new date in the Autumn, which we will communicate to you during the first half of next week. Keep following us!


Welcoming professionals from a range of backgrounds, the Building Regulations and Fire Safety Conference, chaired by Sir Ken Knight, is your chance to explore first-hand what solutions are being put in place to get around challenges in building and fire safety.

We will examine the latest proposals for reform as well as good practice in ensuring safety is prioritised at every stage of a buildings lifecycle.
