Erratum

An erratum was published on 13/08/2020 as a result of changes on PDF to section 1.1 where the third paragraph was changed from: "The aim any supporting wall appraisal exercise should be to provide assurance that building occupants are not placed at undue risk of harm as a result of fire spread via the external wall system. The appraisal of the external wall and other features should inform and form part of the fire risk assessment for the building or premises" to "The aim of the fire safety risk assessment and any supporting appraisal exercise should be to provide assurance that building occupants are not placed at undue risk of harm as a result of fire spread via the external wall system". Section 2.4, first paragraph: "non-buildings" was updated to "non-domestic buildings".

The HTML and PDF have been updated to reflect these changes.
