Building Regulations Part J

Building regulations, Document J

The Building Regulations Approved Document J and the UK implementation of European standards for chimneys and flues.
Guidance and supplementary information on the UK implementation of European standards for chimneys and flues.

Current building regulations in England and Wales (2000) lay down goal setting requirements for the construction of chimneys and flues and are supported by Approved Document J (2002) which provides guidance on meeting the requirements. This, in turn, is supported by a set of British Standards and other recognised industry documents which have been developed during a period of several decades to lead and reflect good industry practice as applied in England and Wales.

Approved Document J is available as a PDF that you can view by clicking below:
