hi building regs approved document F states mechanical extract 30 litres above or within 300mm
or 60 litres elswhere basicly you can vent your hob extract to the outside or
fit a 6 inch fan

Agree with old dog.

It should vent to outside air, although it does not have to be the extractor hood over the cooker.

It can be elsewhere in the room but has to have a higher extraction rate, as pointed out.:)

mr building control cant go and whistle cos of part p, new build or not. kitchens like bathrooms are special location so ALL work must be tested and registered, unless you wanna run the risk

Where you sign the bit that says your installation complies with the current edition of the wiring regs.:)

Part F which is referred to in the regs.

Doesnt refer to type of extractor, only that one should be fitted.

so as i said in the first place recirculating or external extract, as its not a new build so you can fit whichever you like and mr bco can whistle.:)
