The government has released its Technical Review of Approved Document B of the Building Regulations which contains a summary of responses received in relation to its call for evidence.

A total of 140 individuals/organisations responded to the consultation, submitting a total of 1,342 separate responses. Following analysis of these responses the government stated that although there is a clear desire for change, it is also recognised that there is a need for comprehensive research in order to ensure that any changes clearly represent expert consensus based on a robust evidence base.
