In this paper we define jump set and approximate limits for BV functions on Wiener spaces and show that the weak gradient admits a decomposition similar to the finite dimensional case. We also define the SBV class of functions of special bounded variation and give a characterisation of SBV via a chain rule and a closure theorem. We also provide a characterisation of BV functions in terms of the short-time behaviour of the Ornstein-Uhlenbeck semigroup following an approach due to Ledoux.

Keywords: Wiener space; functions of bounded variation
