What is WCC?

The revised versions of Approved Document K and P come into force in April 2013. These documents have been rewritten, simplified and remodelled to Plain English standards and incorporate several new items. This programme will explain the changes and examine several of the new diagrams and explain slight shifts in technical guidance. It will also clarify the intentions behind the changes. We will look at some common misconceptions and failures in compliance with regard to these two Approved Documents.

The Building Regulations Approved Document L: ‘Conservation of fuel and power’ has been amended. From October 2010, work to existing stock, new build, domestic and non-domestic buildings have to significantly improve their energy efficiency standards and reduce their carbon footprint.


The Building Regulations Approved Document G: ‘Sanitation, hot water safety and water efficiency’ came into force in April 2010. Together with the Code for Sustainable Homes, it ensures a reduction in water use, sets standards for water quality and promotes the safety of hot water systems.

The amended Building Regulations Approved Document L: 'Conservation of fuel and power' (coming into force in October 2010) will impose significant improvements in the energy efficiency standards of new domestic and non-domestic buildings and reduce carbon footprints of existing homes. This programme provides a snapshot of the likely changes and obligations to look out for.
