Details

All Energy Performance Certificates, Display Energy Certificates and Air Conditioning Inspection Reports must be entered onto the relevant Energy Performance Certificate Register to meet the requirements of the Energy Performance of Buildings (Certificates and Inspections) (England and Wales) Regulations 2012. The register contracts operate on a cost recovery basis and operators are permitted to charge fees for entering certificates onto the registers.

From the 6 April 2013 the fees will increase to ensure that the cost of operating the registers will be recovered from the fees that are charged. This document looks at the impact of the increase.
