Approved Document F covers the requirements for ventilation for new dwelling through four standardised methodologies. The 2010 document also covers the introduction of GIP (Guaranteed Installed Performance) and the classification of ventilation as a controlled building service.

For the first time the ventilation regulations are shifting from ‘design only’ to include onsite installation testing and commissioning by a competent person. Alongside Approved Document F (ADF2010), the Domestic Ventilation Compliance Guide (an associated document to ADF) highlights the importance of installation, commissioning and regular maintenance in addition to good and simple user guides so that the end users know what they are doing.
All together - Guaranteed Installed Performance.
