As part of a rolling updates programme, in September 2012 the Scottish Government published a consultation package inviting review and feedback on proposed changes to five sections of the Building (Scotland) Regulations 2004, Technical Handbooks. The consultation was published in four packages which cover:
- Section 0 (General)
- Non-domestic - Section 2 (Fire)
- Section 3 (Environment) & Section 4 (Safety)
- Section 7 (Sustainability)
This Construction Briefing explains each of the four sections of the Technical Handbooks and what has changed in them. This sheet also explains why each of the changes was necessary.
This Construction Briefing refers only to packages 1 to 3. As a result of the scope of its proposed changes, Package 4 is the subject of its own standalone Construction Briefing: Building (Scotland) Regulations: Section 7: Sustainability - A summary of the proposed requirements
- Summary of proposed changes
- Technical handbook - Section 0 (General)
- Technical handbook (non-domestic) - Section 2 (Fire)
- Technical handbooks - Section 3 (Environmental) and Section 4 (Safety)
