The Gas Safety Council and the LABC (Local Authority Building Control), two important organisations have become members of the National Home Improvement Council.
The purpose of this is to inform decisions to improve fuel safety in the UK, with the ultimate goal of reducing death and serious injury. It especially seeks to reduce the incidents of death and serious injury associated with carbon monoxide (CO) exposure.
It is the UK’s natural and authoritative choice for fuel safety information with key objectives of further improving gas/fossil fuel safety for the public and industry throughout the UK.

LABC is the umbrella organisation for local authority building control departments in England and Wales. It aims to promote the design and construction of safe, accessible and environmentally efficient buildings that comply with the Building Regulations at a national level through local authority building control.
So whenever a homeowner starts a building project such as an extension or rooms in the roof, their local authority building control department provides advice, guidance and inspections to ensure their project complies with Building Regulations.
LABC has over 3000 professional surveyors and support technicians throughout 12 regions – all expert consultants to the building industry. It works closely with trade organisations, manufacturers, distributors, research establishments, test houses and professional institutions, to support innovation in buildings.
LABC is happy to help with enquiries and can be contacted using their online enquiry form which can be found on the Contact page on their website.
