Cladding Remediation Directorate

What we do

We are responsible for protecting lives by ensuring assessment, and remediation of buildings with potentially unsafe cladding. We will ensure that there is no high-risk combustible cladding systems on multi-occupancy high-rise residential buildings in Scotland.

We will do this through:

  • the design, implementation and driving delivery of the Single Building Assessment
  • the Scottish Safer Buildings Accord and Developer Remediation Contract
  • legislation by way of the new Housing (Cladding Remediation) (Scotland) Bill and Responsible Developers Scheme
  • working with partners to ensure that people of Scotland are safer in their homes and will live in buildings that are safer from cladding fire risk
  • continuing to keep homeowners and residents at the heart of our cladding remediation programme

We are responsible for:

  • introducing necessary legislation in the Scottish Parliament in the form of the Housing (Cladding Remediation) (Scotland) Bill
  • developing policies to implement the Programme for Government and support Programme progress
  • designing and implementing the Single Building Assessment
  • design and delivery of the Scottish Safer Buildings Accord
  • design and delivery of the Scottish Developer Remediation Contract
