Details

The purpose of this divisional circular letter is to bring to attention to all building control bodies (BCBs) and other interested parties about the introduction of a suite of new British Standards (BSs) for structural design, based on European Standards often called the Eurocodes, and the associated withdrawal by British Standards Institution in March 2010 of conflicting BS design standards, some of which are referenced in the Building Regulations Approved Documents.
