Registering assessments to UK NC2018 or UK NC V6 – Version of Part L

BREEAM UK New Construction 2018 was developed for buildings in England which are demonstrating compliance against Part L 2013. The New Construction V6 version is intended for buildings in England which are demonstrating compliance against Part L 2021.

Accordingly, UK NC 2018 will only accept ‘inp’ files created using Part L 2013 building regulations software for England and UK NC V6 will only accept ‘inp’ files created using Part L 2021 building regulations software for England.

 

Assessments already registered to BREEAM UK NC 2018 that must comply with the Part L 2021 of the Building Regulations may follow either of the options below:

  1.  Transfer to the UK NC V6 scheme
  2. Assess under UK NC 2018 and do two Part L models:
    • Part L 2021 for statutory compliance
    • Part L 2013 for BREEAM purposes

New assessments subject to Part L 2021 may register to UK NC V6 or follow Option 2, above.
