Reference technical indications
Any figure working in the Construction sector must refer to specific rules that, when the specific sector is not in possession of precise laws in force, become the main point of reference and technical indication.
These regulations, moreover, constitute the main consultation tool in situations of controversy, and it is therefore necessary to know them in order to better protect themselves.
In the case of Italy, the reference legislative organization is the Italian National Unification Body.
