Approved Document E of the Building Regulations was amended in July 2003 to include housing, flats, rooms for residential purposes and schools. The objectives of the revised Approved Document E, Resistance to the passage of sound was to provide a comprehensive guide for achieving for architects, building control officers and others involved in the design of new buildings and conversions.
Since the 1st July 2003 Approved Document E has required that new built dwellings and those formed by conversion will be subjected to pre-completion sound testing. Sound Testing may include both airborne testing of party walls and floors as well as impact testing where residential properties are built one above the other.
