What are Building Regulations?

Within England and Wales most construction work is covered by the Building Regulations. These are technical standards set by the government and all but the most minor work carried out must conform to these standards.

Building regulations cover a wide range of technical subject areas and there is a great deal of flexibility in how you can meet the standards. The standards are also regularly updated, which means that finding the best way to meet the building regulations can be a challenge even for those working in the industry.
