What are the Building Regulations?

Building Regulations are national standards for England and Wales that apply to most types of buildings, whether in the home or a commercial development. They ensure that the environment in which we all live is a safe and healthy place.

They also ensure that adequate access and facilities are provided for people with disabilities and include requirements for conservation of fuel and power.
