Building Regulations

  • This section supplies information and guidance on the Building Regulations Approved Document J and the specific implementation within the UK of the European Standards for chimneys and flues.

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

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