An updated version of BR 211, the guidance document providing building professionals with information on radon protective measures for new buildings has been updated. The document, which will be officially launched at the Public Health England Radon Forum during Radon Awareness Week, was first published in 1991 giving practical measures for reducing the concentration of radon in new buildings, extensions, conversions and refurbishment projects.
For the first time, the document brings together guidance for England, Wales Scotland and Northern Ireland (replacing documents BR 376 and BR 413 in the latter two countries).
Author Chris Scivyer commented “It was thought that now would be the ideal time to update the guidance and to reawaken awareness of the continuing need for radon-protective measures across the UK”
