Codes, standards and regulations


Building Regulation Health and Safety
Provides a basis for targeting development of the Building Regulations, the Housing Fitness Standard (HFS), and its successor, the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS). The emphasis is on regulation in general, rather than specific legislation or guidance. The report has two key elements: summarising the evidence for the impact of buildings on human health and safety, including fire safety; and assessing the relative importance of the various hazards in buildings, by applying the same risk assessment method to all. BR417 

Building Regulations and health
This report concerns the influence on health of building fabric and services controlled or controllable by Building Regulations. Discussions with conclusions are given for the following health issues: ambient temperature (hypothermia), noise, dampness, sanitation, food storage, lighting, space requirements, domestic waste and indoor air quality. BR97 

Eurocode 1: Part 1 - The structural loading basis of design, dead, imposed, fire, snow and wind loads. Part 2 - The code for structural loading
This two-part Information Paper describes the evlolution of Eurocode 1, summarises its contents, and gives some background information of its derivation. It describes the assumptions and requirements of Eurocode on basis of design, to explain the context in which Eurocode 1 is intended to be used. It gives references, where possible, to enable practising engineers to obtain further insight into the basis and use of the Code’s requirements. This first part covers basis of design, dead, imposed, fire, snow and wind loads. Part 2 covers thermal actions, actions during execution, accidental actions, traffic loads on bridges, actions in silos and tanks, and actions due to cranes and machinery. IP13/98 

Hygiene, health and the environment
One of a series of reports following seminars involving the presentation and discussion of five of the six drafts of the Interpretative Documents. These IDs will provide the links between the Essential Requirements of the Directive and the mandates for producing European Standards, Technical Approvals and other technical specifications. BR180 

Local plans: increasing their usefulness for development control
Reports a study of the extent to which the fist local plans are fulfilling their function of providing a detailed basis for development control, and discusses ways in which local authority planners can increase the effectiveness of local plans in supplying guidance for development control decisions. IP1/82 

Mechanical resistance and stability
One of a series of reports following seminars involving the presentation and discussion of five of the six drafts of the Interpretative Documents. These IDs will provide the links between the Essential Requirements of the Directive and the mandates for producing European Standards, Technical Approvals and other technical specifications. BR181 

Structural Eurocodes: their adoption in the UK
This Paper identifies issues that should be considered by national authorities, professional institutions and universities, to ensure smooth tranition and implementation of the structural Eurocodes. These issues are: the objectives and status of Eurocodes, the Eurocode programme, differences from national codes, use, implementation, costs and benefits of harmonisation and opportunities to the professions. IP3/99 

The conformance of some common building products with British Standards
Wall ties, precast concrete blocks, timber scaffold blocks, admixtures for concrete and water-thinned primers for wood were examined for conformance with British Standards. Very few of the products conformed completely with all requirements of the standards. IP13/83
