Share this Post:

This report from the U.K. Department for Communities and Local Government states that all Energy Performance Certificates, Display Energy Certificates and Air Conditioning Inspection Reports in England and Wales must be entered on to the relevant Energy Performance Certificate Register to meet the requirements of the Energy Performance of Buildings (Certificates and Inspections) (England and Wales) Regulations 2012. Regulation 28 permits the Register Operator to charge fees of £1.15 for entering certificates relating to dwellings and £5.36 for certificates relating to non-dwellings onto the Registers. The fees need to rise to £1.67 and £11.81 respectively to cover and take account of service enhancements and is much lower than anticipated revenues. This report  presents the results of an impact assessment study of this measure.
