- 12 Jul 2019
The 2019 building standards technical handbooks (domestic and non-domestic) are published on 12 July 2019.
The main changes are to the provision for fire safety within Section 2 (Fire) in both the domestic and non-domestic handbooks. These changes form part of the output from the Ministerial Working Group on Building and Fire Safety and the 2018 consultation on fire safety.
A further change under standard 3.12 introduces provision of ‘Changing Places Toilets’ in larger non-domestic buildings.
A number of minor corrections and updating website hyperlinks have also been made.
The guidance comes into force on 1 October 2019.
