The UK has set in law a target to bring all its greenhouse gas emissions to net zero. As part of this journey the Government has committed to introducing the Future Homes Standard, with revisions to the Approved Documents for Part L and Part F to make them easier to navigate and to support efforts to simplify Approved Documents more generally.

This course sets out an overview of Parts L and F and provides an understanding of the differences between the existing and previous Regulations and Approved Documents.
