To promulgate the application, administration and enforcement the provisions of Building (Planning) Regulations, the Building Authority (BA), as a public authority to approve the building works whether for new building works or alteration & addition works, has issued a number of practice notes, code of practice and design manual on compliance with the requirements, which unarguably play an important role in the building control mechanism.
