    Yes, BS8300 has been updated in 2018. These are the main changes:

    Accessibility

    Whereas previously the focus was purely on accessibility, it is now on inclusive design. To this end, BS8300:2018 (Parts 1 and 2) advise that an Access Consultant should be on hand from the start of each project. They will assist with aspects of accessibility both inside and outside a building.

    External Stair Nosings

    The new BS8300:2018 incorporates two sections. Part 1 for external environments, and part 2 for internal situations. The standard recommends that stair nosings should be used in situations where vertical movement (steps and stairs) occurs.

    Quantum Flooring Solutions

    The Quantum Flooring Solutions’ Q-range offers specifiers and flooring contractors a stair nosing solution that meets the requirements of BS8300:2018, both in the context of providing a clear LRV contrast on the nose of steps and a full width tread providing a slip resistant surface which enhances safety.
