    If everything is supposed to meet British standards why is this information not freely available? After a quick online search one website was quoting nearly £270 for a pdf for Flooring related 8201

    Is this correct or am I still half asleep?

    It use to be free if you went to the library. Unfortunately half of it is outdated and unreasonable to comply to in the real world

    When I went to an upskill course with FITA I believe Steve Ramsden is currently re-writing and updating it.

    I would really like to get hold of a copy, not £270 quids worth of like, but be nice to know where we stand.
    Makes me wonder how many other trades are really working to the British standards?
    A few builders I know would never pay that money for a bit of paper and they’re building houses lol

    Was at Floorskills this week, Shaun said it may have been possible to find online so I just left it at that. If it’s currently being rewritten might as well hold my horses

    It’s just daft, it’s not like I want a hardback copy of the whole 35k pages

    Would be nice if you find it to post up a link on here for others. If I get time I'll have a nose around and see if I can source it
