Technical Booklets: F1 dealing with dwellings and F2 dealing with buildings other than dwellings.

Articles 7-10 were implemented by ”The Energy Performance of Buildings (Certificates and Inspections) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2008”. This is Statutory Rule 2008 No 170. The regulations were made on 10th April 2008 and came into operation from 30th June 2008 with a phased approach. The regulations were subsequently modified by a correction sheet (to correct minor errors) prior to coming into operation.

2 > Status of the implementation

Calculation procedures: Implementation of Article 3

The procedures for a national calculation methodology (ie a suite of software tools approved for the purposes of production of Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) and Display Energy Certificates (DECs) (Art 7(3)) for building energy performance have been established and will be published in Autumn 2008 within the NCM Modelling Guide. Software tools have been developed by Government (ie SBEM, SAP and MCOR); however other software packages, dynamic simulation models and interfaces can be used, provided these are approved by Government. In England and Wales the Notice of Approval document (to be found at

www.communities.gov.uk/publications/planningandbuilding/noticeapprov

al) sets out the approved:

› methods of calculation of the energy performance of buildings, including methods for calculating the target emission rate, building emission rate, asset rating and operational rating;

› ways of expressing the energy performance of buildings as calculated, in accordance with the methodology.

These tools and procedures are available for the regional governments in the UK to adopt, to suit their implementation strategy.

In Scotland, the asset based methodology has been adopted (for all EPCs including those for public buildings) and is incorporated in the software packages approved for use in Scotland.

Approved packages include:



the Government’s Standard Assessment Procedure for the Energy Rating of Dwellings (SAP2005) www.bre.co.uk/sap2005;

› approved software applications of SAP2005 and RdSAP2005 (a reduced data application of SAP2005 for use in the energy assessment of existing dwellings) www.bre.co.uk/sap2005;



the Government’s Simplified Building Energy Model (SBEM)

http://www.ncm.bre.co.uk;

› approved software interfaces to SBEM; › approved Dynamic Simulation Model software packages (DSMs);



› approved software applications of MCOR (except Scotland).

Requirements for new buildings: Implementation of Articles 4&5 England and Wales

The requirements for new buildings came into force in April 2006 – see Approved Documents ADL1A (dwellings) and ADL2A (buildings other than dwellings) at
