Dry/stud wall and building regulations?

Are there any dry/stud wall and building regulations online? A quick search did not find any.

I need to know minimum thickness, fire regulations with regard to materials, etc.
I'm using materials designed for stud walls so should be okay.

In case people ask, this is replacing a wall that used to exist.
It won't have a door, only a door sized opening.
It has it's own windows, with emergency exit to outside without requiring a ladder. The other 'room' also has windows and a door.
It's going exactly where a wall used to be so structurally should be okay.

The old owners took the wall out to make one stupidly-shaped room that just doesn't work (I think they realised this too as they hung a curtain across the room sometime after taking the wall down.

Additionally, has anyone built a stud wall here and want to share their experiences, especially if they built the wall on top of a floor with underfloor-heating with an unrecorded layout.

Thanks

Can't help at all with regulations ..

But when i suspected my underfloor heating was not working, I bought FLiR camera attachment for my iPhone . It showed my that the heating was working, just not very warm. But was surprisingly detailed too, I could follow the pipes from room to room. every bend was totally visible.
It's not millimeter accurate obviously because the heat spreads.. But could be a cheap option to get the general layout.

Not nearly accurate enough - and if a mistake were made - it could be very costly!
