Building regulations manual - front cover image

The UK Government has issued a new 'Manual to the Building Regulations', a short guide that gives an outline on how the building regulations system in England works.

The manual is aimed at a range of audiences: from homeowners planning home improvements to sole tradespeople, builders, architects and building control professionals.

The first half of the guide, Volume 1, gives an outline of how the system currently works and Volume 2 provides additional guidance and is geared towards people working in construction.
