A Review of the English and Swedish Building Regulatory Systems for Fire Safety using a Socio-Technical System (STS) Based Methodology HOLIFAS Project WP3
Abstract and Figures
This report is the result of a socio-technical system (STS) review of the English and Swedish building regulatory systems for fire safety. The project is a part of the HOLIFAS project, pertaining to fire safety of facades from a technical and regulatory perspective. The regulatory settings of England and Sweden are considered as a socio-technical system with complex interactions between institutions, actors (stakeholders) and technology. By applying the socio-technical building regulatory assessment methods, STBRSAM, the English and Swedish systems are reviewed. The application of the STBRSAM to England raised issues identified in the Hackitt review and demonstrates proof of concept for the applicability of the STBRSAM. The application of the STBRSAM to Sweden raises similar issues as identified in England. Both systems show inadequacies that may lead to unsafe buildings. The review identifies a number of inadequacies in both the English and Swedish regulatory regime. Most notably, there is a widespread lack of clarity in roles and responsibilities and lack of clear competency and accountability structures.
