HTM 03-01 Parts A and B rewrite consultation process.


In December 2018 NHSi set out the scope for a revision of HTM 03-01 this document was based on a limited investigation of available information/research and formal and informal submissions from interested parties. An initial meeting was held in early May attended by invited people including some professional institutions; one being CIBSE.

The CIBSE Healthcare group held a committee meeting in early June, the committee decided in line with the institutions charter to hold a one day meeting on 25th July 2019 to outline topics and issues needing resolution by a revised HTM 03-01, followed by a break out session for the members to provide their input and thoughts on how the HTM can be improved to better meet the needs of the patients and staff working in medical facilities. These being sorted and incorporated into the formal CIBSE response to NHSi in August 2019, these available for Download below.

The main topics covered at the beginning of the one-day meeting by various speakers included:

  • New Technologies,
  • Design,
  • Maintenance,
