Our guide to Building Regulations for windows & door installations
Since April 2002, all glazing installations must comply with Building Regulations requirements. The regulations cover several aspects of replacement glazing criteria including safety, ventilation, means of escape and thermal performance. In general, most glazing installers will be able to provide the required documentation on completion of the installation. If a glazing installer is not registered with a competent person’s scheme, then the building owner will need to obtain approval from an approved inspector or local authority official.
