Building Regulations Document F Vol 2 CO2 & Ventilation

Building Regulations Document F

by | Oct 3, 2022

Recent amendments to Building Regulations Document F Vol 2 now highlight requirements for ventilation. This includes the benefits carbon dioxide (CO2) monitors can provide.

Building Regulations Document F Vol 2 now recommend inclusion of CO2 monitors for indoor air quality. These new amendments were valid since June 2022.

Who does this affect?

  • The document focuses on new buildings other than dwellings
  • Focuses on occupiable rooms
  • Spaces above 125m3 and below 800m3.

Occupied room types, where sport or the public are likely to meet include:

  • Schools
  • Gyms
  • Indoor sports venues
  • Dance studios
  • Theatres
  • Concert halls
  • Hotels
  • Public houses
  • Library

What type of CO2 monitors are required?

Where monitors are provided, they should be of non-dispersive infra red type NDIR with mains or permanent power source. A popular monitor is the CO2MC as it has versions suitable for use in schools, offices, kitchens and laboratories as well as a custom setpoint version.

Installation guidance

To get accurate readings from monitors the sensors should be installed.

  • At breathing height
  • Away from doors, windows and ventilation
  • Away from people (where practicable 500mm minimum)
