BS 5268: Part 3: 1998 deals specifically with the design and fabrication of trussed rafter roof construction. BS 6399: Part 3: 1997 is the code of practice for the loads imposed on roofs, dealing with such aspects as dead and live loads as well as snow loading. BS 5250 concerns itself with the roof void ventilation and was last reviewed in 1995.
