Update. Codes of Practice Update - Timber

Changes to Codes of Practice and their supporting Standards are being made as a consequence of the introduction of European standards in the United Kingdom. When a European Standard (designated EN xxxxx) is published by the European Standards Committee (CEN) each nation is required to withdraw any conflicting parts of a corresponding national standard and implement the EN within a given period of time. This time period can be as short as 6 months but standards for the construction industry are usually implemented in batches because of the interdependence of the standards. P.J. Steer
