NBS is carrying out research for the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG). It is about the Building Regulations Approved Documents (ADs), in particular:
  • Part B (Fire Safety)
  • Part M (Access to and use of buildings)

This survey is for people who need to comply with the Regulations, or those who help others to comply. We’d like to know what you think about the usability of the Approved Documents. DCLG will use your feedback to help develop the style and format of future ADs.

The survey should take about 15 minutes to complete. It is detailed, so that DCLG have enough information to develop the ADs in the way that users want. If you complete the survey you can enter into a prize draw to win £100 of John Lewis vouchers or a donation to charity of the same amount.


We adhere to the Market Research Society Code of Conduct and will not share with DCLG the identities of those who have participated. Terms and conditions apply. The survey closes on Friday, 4 March 2016.

Thank you for your time, we very much appreciate it.
