What is the Part L 2021 uplift for the Building Regulations in England?

This course covers the energy efficiency requirements of the Building Regulations in England that are being updated. Part L 2021 is due to come into effect in June 2022 and will act as an ‘uplift’ to help the construction industry adapt to changing regulations and low carbon heating.

The government refers to Part L 2021 interchangeably as the ‘interim Part L’ or the ‘2021 Part L uplift’, because it is a stepping stone to the introduction of the Future Homes and Future Buildings Standards in 2025. It is important to be clear that Part L 2021 is not the Future Homes Standard or the Future Buildings Standard.

By the end of this course, you should be able to:

  • Understand the timeline for updates to Part L of the Building Regulations
  • Describe the key regulations changes in Part L
  • Understand the role of Accredited Construction Details (ACDs) in Part L
