NEW Radon Protection Requirements – Update -July ‘23 Guidance

Following the recently published BRE BR 211 2023 edition titled ‘Radon – Guidance on protective measures for new buildings’, its guidance should now be followed as it supports Building Regulations for all UK nations, and it has prompted the NHBC to release NHBC Technical Guidance 4.1/01 (July 2023) (Third issue) – Radon barriers.
