The Building Regulations
The Building Regulations are a comprehensive set of rules which provide a detailed system of quality control for all stages of building work. They cover a wide range of matters including drains, sewage and sanitary conveniences, foundations and building materials. They were originally model by-laws which were made under the Public Health Act 1875 and which many local authorities adopted with modification. The Public Health Act 1961 replaced these by-laws by the Building Regulations, which came into effect in 1966.
