iRAP Specification, Manuals and User Manual Update

 

iRAP has updated its specifications, user guides and manuals

iRAP has consolidated 11 of its previous specifications and manuals into 8 updated documents. One document, ‘Commonly Asked Coding Questions and Answers’, is now incorporated into the ViDA forum.

In doing so, iRAP aims to:

  • Reduce the number of documents and duplication of information
  • Improve the consistency and clarity of information
  • Make it easier to find information
  • Improve the resources for training and accreditation purposes
  • Ensure the guidance helps suppliers to deliver high quality projects
  • Adapt to new methods and technologies available, and
  • Support the new Star Rating for Designs tool.

From 1 July 2019, all new projects are required to transition to the new specifications.

The latest editions are downloadable below.

How can I find out more?

The new specifications, manuals and user guides are available at www.irap.org/specifications. News and updates on their release will be posted on the iRAP website, on ViDA and in iRAP’s regular WrapUp and/or Building Capacity newsletters.
