Scottish Building Standards

Scottish Building Standards

From 1st October 2013, some of the guidance for meeting Scottish Building Standards is changing.

A key change is the introduction of guidance on the provision of Carbon Monoxide Alarms in dwellings and residential buildings

Scottish Building Standards Technical Handbook (Domestic) 2013 Section 3 includes new sub-section 3.20.20, which states that:

“In order to alert occupants to the presence of levels of carbon monoxide which may be harmful to people, a detection system should be installed in all dwellings where:

• A new or replacement fixed combustion appliance (excluding an appliance used solely for cooking) is installed in the dwelling; or

• a new or replacement fixed combustion appliance is installed in an inter-connected space, for example an integral garage.”

This also applies to smaller residential premises such as guest houses.
