The 1992 / 2000 edition of Approved Document G (Part G) was simply entitled Hygiene. The much longer revised title indicates two areas where the scope of Part G has increased, namely water efficiency and hot water safety.
Being an almost complete re-write, the 2009 edition contains a number of significant changes, the most notable of which include the differentiation between wholesome (drinking quality) and non-wholesome water, the requirement of temperature limiting taps to prevent scolding and the choice of new water calculation tool to regulate water consumption
This Construction Briefing gives readers a broad summary of the contents of the new part G, explains why the changes were necessary and provides commentary on the practical implications of the changes.
