Sections of the UK Building RegulationsBuilding regulations are prepared and controlled by the Department for Communities and Local Government and are intended to ensure that householders having building work carried out are protected from sub-standard design and workmanship.

- Part A Structural safety
- Part B Fire safety
- Part C Resistance to contaminants and moisture
- Part D Toxic substances
- Part E Resistance to sound
- Part F Ventilation
- Part G Sanitation, hot water safety and water efficiency
- Part H Drainage and waste disposal
- Part J Heat producing appliances
- Part K Protection from falling
- Part L Conservation of fuel and power
- Part M Access to and use of buildings
- Part N Glazing safety
- Part P Electrical safety.
These sections can be downloaded without charge at http://www.planningportal.gov.uk/buildingregulations/approveddocuments/
The fees charged by local authorities vary from council to council but a visit to the website of your local building control department will set out the costs involved.
