In 2003 the Building Regulations in England and Wales changed with the introduction of mandatory sound insulation testing of a minimum of 10% of all new attached homes whether new build, conversions, or rooms for residential purposes. Builders now have to provide the Building Control Body with evidence of the sound insulation actually achieved in those dwellings.
I am a tester, registered with the Association of Noise Consultants scheme, which is referred to in Approved Document E. The test results are made available to BCO’s via a secure web site known as Advance.
In 2010, Section 5 of the Building Regulations (Scotland) was revised and also includes mandatory testing. In November 2011, I was registered to undertake tests in Scotland under Section 5.
