What are the Building Regulations?

A majority of building projects are required to comply with the Building Regulations which ensure the health and safety of people in and around all types of buildings. They also cover energy conservation, and access and facilities to buildings ensuring they can be used by everyone.

Building Regulations ensure buildings are habitable, safe, dry and warm, when building or making alterations to your property and set the standard for the design and construction of buildings.

The Building Regulations are made under powers provided in the Building Act 1984, and apply in England and Wales. The current edition of the regulations is The Building Regulations 2010, these form the basis for the approved documents and supporting documentation.
