Proposed Changes in the Building Regulations. Content and Form of the Building Regulations

Following general discussions in 1981 on changes in the Building Regulations (CMND 8179; The future of building control in England and Wales) the Department of the Environment last May invited comments on two consultative documents: The FORM of future Regulations; and their CONTENT. On behalf of the Council the President has authorised that the following observations be sent to the Department as reflecting views of the Institution. The comments have been drawn up by the Working Party appointed by the Council under the Chairmanship of Mr R. J. M. Sutherland (Vice-president). The Department has proposed that the Regulations themselves should be confined to broad functional requirements purely expressive of their tasks.
