Course Description

Regulations are rules or directives that prescribe certain types of conduct. They can be statutory,  produced by regulatory bodies and specifying the ways in which legislation (in the form of Acts),  should be interpreted and applied, or they can be created by independent organisations to regulate  their own conduct or the conduct of their members. 

There are a great number of regulations that apply to the construction industry. 

The Building Regulations establish minimum standards to be achieved in the construction of  buildings. They are supported by a series of approved documents that provide guidance about how  the building regulations can be satisfied in common building situations, and these in turn are  supported by a wide range of reference documents such as Building regulations.
