The Department for Education is launching a Call for Evidence on Building Bulletin 100: Design for Fire Safety in Schools, (BB100)




Why we are consulting

To ensure the Department for Education’s, (DfE) guidance to those who build schools is fit for purpose and aligns with the Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government’s, (MHCLG) wider review of fire safety, we are launching a call for evidence on BB100 ahead of a consultation and thorough review.

What happens next

Following the call for evidence, responses will be analysed and the guidance revised as necessary.
