Practice Note for Authorized Persons,

Buildings Department Registered Structural Engineers and ADM-1


Registered Geotechnical Engineers

Practice Notes in Force

The Building Authority (BA) issues practice notes to authorized persons


(AP), registered structural engineers (RSE) and registered geotechnical engineers (RGE)
from time to time to promulgate how he applies and enforces the provisions of the
Buildings Ordinance (BO) and its subsidiary regulations as well as other administrative
and advisory matters in the administration of the BO.

Categorization of PNAP

2. Practice notes, named as Practice Note for Authorized Persons and


Registered Structural Engineers and abbreviated as PNAP are issued since 1974 with a
serial number according to the chronological order of publication and without
categorization on the nature of the content thereof. In response to request from the
practitioners with a view to facilitating easy reference by all concerned, PNAPs are now
categorized into three parts according to the nature of their contents with new serial
numbers as follows, with effect from August 2009:

(a) Part A Administration


It consists of PNAPs (new serial numbers prefixed ADM), mainly
relating to the general administration of the Buildings Department (BD)
and other administrative matters relating to plan approval, issue of consent
and occupation permits and related matters.

(b) Part B Application of the BO and Regulations


It consists of PNAPs (new serial numbers prefixed APP) explaining
how the BA applies and enforces the provisions of the BO and its
regulations and other Ordinances administered by the BA/Director of
Buildings (DB), as well as those Ordinances not administered by the
BA/DB but relating to plan approval and building control under the
jurisdiction of the BD.

(c) Part C Advisory


It consists of PNAPs (new serial numbers prefixed ADV) of general
advisory nature or those intending for promotion of good practices to the
practitioners in the building industry.

3. With the first issue of this PNAP ADM-1 in August 2009, all extant PNAPs
are re-issued with the above categorization and new serial numbers, but their contents
remain unchanged. It should be noted that the PNAPs grouped under one part may contain
information the nature of which is related to the other parts. The BA will endeavour to
update the PNAPs when opportunity arises to improve the contents as far as practicable.

/Renaming of PNAP
-2-

Renaming of PNAP

4. Since the introduction of RGE under the Buildings (Amendment) Ordinance


2004, PNAPs are also circulated to RGE in addition to AP and RSE. With the re-issue of
all extant PNAPs with the new categorization and serial numbers, opportunity is taken to
rename them as Practice Note for Authorized Persons, Registered Structural Engineers and
Registered Geotechnical Engineers. The abbreviation is, however, maintained as PNAP
for simplicity sake.

Chinese Version

5. We have also taken this opportunity of re-issue of all extant PNAPs to


publish a Chinese version of the PNAPs. All new and revised PNAPs to be issued in future
will be in bilingual format.

Practice Notes in Force

6. The list of PNAPs in force together with the new categorization is listed at
Appendix A. Such list will be kept updated on BDs website (www.bd.gov.hk/).

7. To afford instant updating of information and for environmentally


friendliness, all PNAPs will be disseminated via BDs website and issue of hardcopies
thereof will cease forthwith. In this connection, we have revamped the webpage of PNAPs
adding more features which aim to enhance the search function and navigation. Premised
on these built-in new functions, the indexes indicated in the footnote of the extant PNAPs
will become redundant and will be deleted as and when the PNAPs are revised in future.

8. PNAPs have proven to be useful platforms in our dissemination of


information to the practitioners. I hope you will find the aforesaid new arrangements for
issue of PNAPs both user and environmentally friendly. With your support, we can help
contribute towards a more sustainable society.
