The updated C/AS2 combines six previously separate Acceptable Solutions into a single compliance document. This means C/AS2 now applies across all building risk groups with the exception of small residential buildings and outbuildings, which are covered by C/AS1, and complex buildings which are out of scope for an Acceptable Solution.
MBIE has received a lot of feedback from the sector on further potential improvements to C/AS2. We are currently analysing this feedback and are likely to make amendments to C/AS2 as a result. We expect to issue a public consultation document in March 2020 to support this work, as part of the biannual Building Code update programme.
Changes to C/AS2 resulting from this consultation will come into effect in June 2020.
