Approved Document G provides guidance on observing the Building Regulations concerned with sanitation, hot water and water efficiency. This is an essential reference for anyone undertaking building work.

This revised Approved Document will take effect on 1 October 2015 for use in England. The 2010 edition will continue to apply to work started before 1 October 2015 or work subject to a building notice, full plans application or initial notice submitted before that date.

This title supersedes The Building Regulations 2010: Approved Document G: Sanitation, hot water and water efficiency, 2010 Edition (ISBN 9780117068308).

The following changes were made from the previous edition:

  • Introduction of an optional requirement for tighter water efficiency in Regulation 36 (section G2)

  • Introduction of a fittings approach as an alternative to using the Water Efficiency Calculator (section G2)

  • Inclusion of the Water Efficiency Calculator methodology into this Approved Document with minor alterations resulting from European efficiency labelling and consequential amendments resulting from removal of references to the Code for Sustainable Homes (Appendix A)

  • The annex listing the relevant competent person self-certification schemes has been deleted.

The Building Regulations are concerned with protecting the health and safety of those in and around buildings. Anyone intending to carry out building work in England and Wales is required by law to obtain building control approval to ensure Regulations are complied with.

The Approved Documents provide technical guidance on ways of complying with the Building Regulations. They are continuously revised in line with new legislation. Therefore it is essential to keep fully updated with the latest editions and amendments.
