The Robust Details Certification Scheme is for separating walls and floors in new build joined houses, bungalows and flats in order to meet new noise regulations. Using the scheme avoids the need for pre-completion testing. The workshop will answer all your questions about the scheme and show how you can use it both in design and application.
Please note that as well as BAC and direct payment through Fife Construction Forum you can make direct payment through the Napier Store – the link is given here and on the attached PDF. http://store.napier.ac.uk In this case there is no need to complete the booking form as this will take place on-line as part of the purchase.

A Robust Detail, for Part E of Building Regulations, is a separating wall or floor construction which has been assessed and approved by RDL.
In order to be approved, each Robust Detail must:
Robust Detail designs are pre-tested to higher standards than those required by Approved Document E of the Building Regulations before being approved by RDL. Therefore, if you build using Robust Details, you won't have to carry out pre-completion sound testing.
Robust Details Limited (RDL) is a UKAS accredited product certification body. It is a non-profit distributing company limited by guarantee. The business started in May 2004, in response to the house-building industry's need for an alternative to pre-completion sound testing to satisfy Part E of the Building Regulations (England and Wales).. RDL funds the Part E Robust Details scheme primarily from plot registration fees. Other sources of income include income from Handbook sales, Handbook subscriptions and type approval fees.
