The inquiry, the findings of which were published in March by the Chief Inspector of Fire and Rescue Authorities, Steven Torrie, set out a number of recommendations and lessons to be learned from the tragedy.
The Government's response notes that a review of the process for the creation and development of operational policy within Strathclyde Fire and Rescue, the service responsible for the failed rescue attempt, has been undertaken and Strathclyde now has a specialist line rescue team.
All eight fire services now have arrangements in place for line rescue, either on their own or through mutual agreements.
National rope rescue training has also been introduced at a new facility at Newcraighall near Edinburgh.
Community Safety Minister Roseanna Cunningham said: "The chief inspector's inquiry was a very important piece of work, and a reminder that the death of Alison Hume was a tragedy the likes of which we never want to see repeated, and our thoughts are with Mrs Hume's family and friends."
