VBA Practice Note Review

Due to recent and substantial amendments to the Building Act 1993, the Building Interim Regulations 2017 and the implementation of the new Building Regulations 2018, the VBA wishes to advise that all practice notes are currently under review.

Please ensure compliance with current relevant legislation, rather than relying on practice notes, which may be subject to change.
