  • Approved Document B (fire safety): amendments to statutory guidance on assessments in lieu of tests

    The Grenfell Tower disaster and the subsequent findings of Dame Judith Hackitt’s interim report into building regulations and fire safety raised a number of questions. These included the adequacy of the current building regulations and statutory guidance, particularly Approved Document B.

  • Public consultation on the review of the Working Time Directive consultation

    The organisation and regulation of working time in the public and private sector has considerable social, economic and political impact. At EU level, Directive 2003/88/EC (the Working Time Directive) aims at providing minimum standards common to all Member States for protecting workers from health and safety risks associated with excessive or inappropriate working hours, and with inadequate time for rest and recovery from work. Article 31(2) of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union similarly provides that: 'Every worker has the right to limitation of maximum working hours, to daily and weekly rest periods, and to an annual period of paid leave.

    The EC notes that over the last twenty years, changes have occurred in the world of work and the economy, which have impacted the organisation of working time. It believes it is now necessary to reflect on the kind of working time legislation the EU needs to address the current and future challenges – social, economic, technological and demographic. It has therefore launched a comprehensive review of the Working Time Directive (WTD). Its stated objective is to analyse what changes to the current legal framework would possibly be needed to arrive at working time rules which best meet the needs of workers, businesses, public services and consumers across the EU.
