NBS by definition is the UK national building specification. Content and guidance in our products is based on UK Building Regulations, Legislation and Building Contracts. However, as the UK is a member of the EU, we have to adopt European Standards in a BS EN format. Up to 70% of Standards quoted in NBS are now in BS EN format.
