The latest edition of The Drain Repair Book is a best-practice guide devised by insurers for contractors
working in the public and private sectors. Iain Naismith of the WRc group outlines the updates.

When the Insurers’ Drainage Forum met in September it was satisfied with the progress it made in introducing best practice into the resolution of drainage claims in the private drain repair market. And, in particular, it was pleased with the contribution made by publishing The Drain Repair Book. First launched in 1993 and updated in 2005, the second edition of The Drain Repair Book (DRB2) has applications beyond insurance-funded repairs into the public sector. This applies both to local government in managing repairs under their public health duties and for sewerage undertakers preparing for the proposed transfer of private sewers and lateral drains to their ownership.
