Building Regs Legislation 2010

The Building Regulations are made up of:

  • Procedural regulations that set out what kind of work needs Building Regulations approval and how that approval should be obtained
  • Technical requirements that set the standards that should be achieved by the building work.

An overview of the technical requirements can be found on this site, but the Regulations themselves (see below) should be consulted for the details and to ensure your obligations under them are understood.



The Department uses one or both of Circular and Divisional Circular letters, which can be viewed on the website to help to explain the regulations.

Previous Legislation

The Building Regulations 2000 and all amendments were revoked from 1 October 2010, and are therefore no longer in existence.
