This new edition of the Guide has been fully revised and updated to incorporate 2013 ammendments to the Building Regulations, including:-

  • Replacing the currently-referenced standards in Part A (Structure) with the new British Standards based on Eurocodes
  • Aligning the existing guidance in Approved Document C (Site preparation and resistance to contaminants and moisture) with the most up-to-date radon maps to ensure the safety provisions are targeted appropriately
  • Wholesale revision of Part L (Conservation of fuel and power) to reduce carbon dioxide emissions further
  • Clarifying the guidance on Access Statements in Approved Document M (Access to and use of buildings)
  • Rationalising the guidance supporting Parts M, K and N (Access, Protection from falling, collision and impact and Glazing respectively) to remove unnecessary costs on business
  • Making changes to the technical guidance in Approved Document B (Fire safety) to resolve practical problems in the application of Requirement B2 (Internal fire spread (linings))
  • Setting out the intention to take forward the repeal of the fire protection provisions in the Local Acts
  • Setting out the non-regulatory approach proposed in relation to domestic security and Changing Places toilets.
