Following the Grenfell Tower fire, and several terror attacks in London and Manchester, the GGF has formed a new government advisory panel that will be part of the GGF’s political strategy committee.

The GGF said this would allow it to co-ordinate its internal resource and members’ opinions, so it could form swift and focused responses to emergency situations, especially with regard to the product and services provided by the GGF membership.

Phil Pluck, GGF chief executive, said: “It is important that the GGF offers government solutions and support when incidents concerning glass and glazing occur. The new government advisory panel will help the GGF pull together its internal resources and members’ expertise more effectively and efficiently.”   

The advisers will be made up from nominated experts from the GGF’s specialist groups. It will allow all the relevant parties and sectors to be considered and come together as one unified voice for the industry.

The panel will be promoted to all government departments, all local councils, and to the trade and mainstream media.
