The New code is not now in place It is only on the MCA website. I am in the middle of having a Rib coded and according to the MCA coding department the old code is still in force. You can if you wish code to the requirements of the new harmonised stand but it will not be the code of practice until it is signed off by Parliment.

Code statute

Foxdog you are quite correct in that the harmonised codes are not in statute yet.

To us, as suppliers, it is good practice to adopt the new codes ie. working to any more onerous points on the basis that it is anticpated that they will become statute in the near future. You will find that most surveyors have studied the harmonised codes and are working towards it implimentation.

Egg on our faces accepted if Parliment changes their mind !

Legally though it is not in statute and you can apply the relevant existing codes until it comes into statute.
