The Building Regulations Approved Document F: ‘Ventilation’ and Part J: ‘Combustion appliances and fuel storage systems’ have been amended.

From October 2010, Approved Document J requires energy reduction at source, carbon monoxide alarms and more detail on biomass boilers. Part F stipulates the importance of ventilating increasingly airtight buildings.

Presented by the main authors of the Approved Documents and other leading experts in the field, this programme explains the most important issues and examines various ways to comply.
