From 1st October, 2010, Document J became the Government’s ‘Approved Document’ relating to combustion appliances and fuel storage systems in the Building Regulations 2000.
This is a legal document to which all contractors must adhere when working on chimney related projects.
As chimney sweeps and diagnostic engineers we come across a number of instances where work that has been carried out doesn’t meet the regulations set out in Document J. In a few cases, we may have to condemn the appliance/flue/chimney on the basis that it’s simply not safe for you to use. We have provided the following link to Document J for your reference.
