Default Eurocode adoption not to be forced?

2012 consultation on changes to the Building Regulations in England: Section one - Introduction to the consultation package and proposals on Parts A, B, C, K, M and N, Access Statements, security, Changing Places toilets and Regulation 7

... we therefore propose to supplement guidance in the Approved Document with additional advice, perhaps through an accompanying Circular with the final changes, that clarifies:
  • that until withdrawn British Standards become significantly outdated, probably some time after 2015, use of currently-referenced structural design standards could still be used to demonstrate compliance with the Building Regulations
  • that beyond 2015 use of these withdrawn standards may in some circumstances still be acceptable and that building control bodies should accept an approach where a designer is able to demonstrate it is appropriate for the particular building structure proposed. This is likely to be particularly appropriate for smaller-scale building development.
Longer extract at or download the full consultation from the DCLG site link above. The consultation paper includes a response form. The deadline for submitting responses is 27 April 2012.
