I saw a question tagged today. I initially assumed that it was asking about the UK Building Regulations, a specific set of codes. I checked the tag info to make sure... but there's no tag info.

On meta I found this unanswered question which says that "building regulations" is used in the UK (but also to a small extent in the US).

Can I fill in the tag info and make it specific to UK Building Regs? Or is it a generic tag that US users want to be able to use?

If making it UK-only I think I would also need to:

  • Change its name to UK-Building-Regulations
  • Add wording that non-UK users should use {code-compliance}
  • Go through all 79 questions currently tagged and re-tag any that are clearly not UK
  • 1
    Perhaps at the same time change the tag to [uk-building-regulations] to be absolutely clear? – Chenmunka Feb 21 '18 at 13:28
  • I'd be reluctant to have two tags that cover the same thing, but the terms are so different it's hard to see how one tag would fit both usages. – ChrisF Feb 21 '18 at 13:55
  • I think it should be synonymized to our existing [code-compliance] tag, even -- they're two different terms for the same basic function. – ThreePhaseEel Feb 22 '18 at 2:40

  • I think a better question is, do we need location specific tags? Narrowing one tag down to one country would be confusing. – Machavity Feb 26 '18 at 17:57
