This regulation only applies to owners of buildings which are class 2 to 9 of type A or B construction (excluding houses and townhouses), which were built or had cladding altered between January 1st 1994 and October 1st 2018.
Any owner of a building that fits this description must register their building and complete the four stages before their listed deadline.
