Do I need building regulations?

Building regulations need to be understood and carefully followed when installing a new stove, chimney or flue. Building regulations provide for a safe installation and cover key areas such as chimney & flue safety, the hearth, clearances to combustible materials and ventilation.
It is important to point out that although all work effecting stoves, chimneys and flues is governed by building control, work carried out by a HETAS registered installer can be self certified to confirm it conforms. Work carried out by an unregistered engineer must be inspected by your local building control officer. On completion a Data Plate will be fitted to confirm building regulation compliance.
