Detail

This final impact assessment sets out proposed changes to Parts K (protection from collision falling and impact), Part M (access to and use of buildings) and Part N (glazing) of the building regulations and provides analysis of the associated costs and benefits.

The proposals are not intended to make changes to technical requirements but will simplify compliance and reduce confusion and complexity for industry.

This impact assessment updates the consultation impact assessment which was a supporting document for Section 1 of the 2012 Building Regulations consultation.
