Details

The purpose of this divisional circular letter is to inform building control bodies that the Department of Energy and Climate Change has confirmed some additional measures that will be introduced into the Green Deal. It also clarifies where such measures are notifiable building work under the building regulations and whether there are competent person scheme installers who may in some cases self-certify the work where it is notifiable.

This letter also informs building control bodies that the Department for Communities and Local Government has issued a new notice of approval for the calculation methodologies for CO2 emissions, fabric energy efficiency and energy performance certificates for new buildings, which comes into effect on 6 April 2014.

The guidance in this circular letter applies to buildings and building work in England, and also to excepted energy buildings in Wales.
