Building Regulation Update
Not such a fascinating day..
More Building Regulation Updates:
Regulation P (Electrical Safety) is being amended to reduce the type and area of work that requires notification to a Building Control Body…..Regulation K, M and N will be rationalised and reorganised so that the ambiguities between them are removed. There is to be a new “Super” Regulation K which will incorporate stairs and ramps from Regulation M and all of Regulation N…..Regulation B (Fire Safety) is amended to include European standards and further guidance on the type and placement of roof lights…..Regulation L (Conservation of Fuel and Power) is being amended in October of this year. One of the changes coming into force on the 9th July 2013 is a requirement for the Applicant to have considered design options for High Efficient alternatives for new buildings. A statement to this effect will therefore have to accompany any new Building Regulation application. Details of the main changes to Regulation L will be posted at a later date.
