Specific Installation Guidance



Relative positions of utility pipework

The recommended distances between utilities can be found in the latest National Joint Utilities Group (NJUG) guidelines. Where these dimensions and depths cannot be achieved protective measures will be required. 

All pipework whether installed above or below ground should be marked in accordance with the requirements of the latest version of BS 1710.

If the installation of the pipework is notifiable, under regulation 5 of the water fittings regulations in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, byelaws in Scotland, installation advice should be provided as part of the notification process. 

If it is not notifiable there remains a legal obligation for the premises owner or occupier to ensure the plumbing work is fully compliant with the water fittings regulations, byelaws in Scotland.
