Members are reminded that two notifications were issued by CIAT advising of amendments to Building Regulations in England. It is important for members to be aware that the first tranch of changes came into force 21 December 2018, these primarily affect Regulation 7 and Approved Document B and 7 of the Building Regulations. In particular, the definition of the ban of combustible materials. We attach for reference the letter which includes the links and outlines the transitional arrangements.
To avoid confusion, a second letter was issued by MHCLG on 18 December 2018 advising of the publication of the updated Approved Document B together with further amendments and confirming the enforcement date of 21 January 2019 for these amendments. The letter including links and transitional arrangements for clarification along with a summary of amendments to Approved Document B can be downloaded below.
