Chemical water treatment manufacturer Sentinel wants a national ‘swoop squad’ to check heating installations to ensure they comply with Part L of the Building Regulations.
This comes in response to reports in the media suggesting that the Government was turning a blind eye to violations of Part L of the Building Regulations (see H&V News story ‘HVCA anger at weak Part L enforcement’ September 22).
Sentinel’s European marketing director Mark Walker said: “We would like to see some form of policing being introduced even if its along the lines of athlete drug testing – no warning, expert assessment of work undertaken, with checks that the work undertaken meets Building Regulations Part L stipulations.
“It will need careful implementation and it will have a cost attaching to it. But we need to take what we do seriously – and there are plenty of people out there currently who don’t.”
