The Building Regulations are legal requirements that apply to most building work. They are minimum requirements and are supported by a large body of guidance in the form of Approved Documents. Negotiating the legal requirements and guidance can be difficult, especially for the untrained.

This Building Regulations course delivers an overview of the subject and provides invaluable assistance to professionals involved in the building process, including those who already have experience with Building Regulations.
