Parts change in the Autumn

Published:  08 June, 2010

MILTON KEYNES: The 2010 versions of Part L (Conservation of fuel and power), F (Ventilation) and J (Combustion appliances and fuel storage systems) have been published, effective from 1 October 2010.

According to the NHBC, the amendments do not apply to sites where work has already started, prior to the 1 October 2010, or sites where an Initial Notice has been issued, prior to the 1 October 2010, providing work starts on site before the 1 October 2011.

A more detailed review of the main changes and implications for designers and builders may be found on the NHBC website.
