Government advice on remediation

The current government advice for remediating buildings of all heights is contained in the Publicly Available Specification 9980, published in January 2022. This replaces the consolidated advice note, which was withdrawn by the government on 10 January 2022.

On introducing the new PAS 9980, the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, Michael Gove, explained that this new document contains risk-based guidance for assessing external wall systems.

We responded to the British Standards Institute’s consultation on the PAS 9980 in June 2021.
