Sliding Pocket door minimum distance from staircase

Check out ADK https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/approved-documents it looks like it only applies to swing doors but applying it to a slide door would only give you 400mm before you have to step up I think I would give it more if possible, check it out with Building Control.

The 400mm rule is a relaxation and applies only to a private stair. Private or otherwise, there is nothing in the technical booklet that would suggest consideration needs to be afforded for pocket doors on to stairs. I am in NI, still part of this completely disunited United Kingdom!
