Technical resources for the wood & woodworking industry

At the BWF we have decades of expertise on the technical matters which affect the woodworking and joinery sector.

In this section you will be able to find information on regulation, standards and certification for the main joinery products manufactured by our members, and technical guidance on the materials used in their production.

We can signpost you to the relevant building regulations for the UK, including all the Devolved Nations, and there is a range of other areas of information that has an industry-wise relevance.

Use the navigation on the left-hand side to find the information you need, and our technical helpline is also available should you not find the answer. Members benefit for unlimited access to our helpline experts, and we do provide some limited assistance to non-members, the public and other parties. Call the helpline on 0844 209 2614/5.

Our technical publications library also contains a wealth of information, including more detailed guidance on building regulations, and care of timber windows and doors on site. You can find more CE marking resources by visiting our CE marking publications.
