In England and Wales, estate agents who are providing written particulars for a property being marketed for sale, will need to include the graphics showing the energy efficiency rating and the environmental impact rating for the property, or attach the EPC (but not the Recommendation Report) to the particulars. There is no equivalent provision in Northern Ireland’s Regulations. Details of the certificate content can be found at

www.dfpni.gov.uk/energy-performance-of-buildings.

The requirement for DECs to be displayed in all public buildings greater than 1000m2 will come into effect from December 2008. A sample certificate is shown left. Details of the certificate content can be found at

Implementation of Articles 8 & 9

The UK has decided to pursue the option of provision of advice on boilers rather than inspection, continuing the extensive programme of information, grant schemes and regulation it has been following for a number of years. An equivalence report was issued to the Commission in January 2008. Examples of implementation can be seen in the amendments to the Building Regulations energy efficiency requirements and guidance available to purchase or via the websites of: the Government of the three regions, the Energy Saving Trust (domestic customers) and the Carbon Trust (non domestic customers).

In England and Wales, reference documents in support of the 2006 amendments to Part L included a Domestic Heating Compliance Guide and a Non Domestic Heating, Cooling and Ventilation Compliance Guide. These will be periodically updated. Subsequently CLG has published “A guide for businesses: Reducing the energy usage and carbon emissions from your heating and hot water systems.”

In England and Wales, the inspections of air conditioning equipment will be phased in from January 2009 for all systems >250KW installed post January 2008 and from January 2011 for all systems >12kW. Installations must be inspected every five years.

Scottish legislation for the introduction of inspections for air-conditioning systems was introduced on 1 May 2007. For existing buildings, inspections will be phased in as follows:

› For all new systems from 1 May 2007; › For existing systems with an effective rated output of more than 250 kW, from 4 January 2009 with first inspections completed by 4 January 2011;

› For existing systems with an effective rated output of more than 12 kW from 4 January 2011 with first inspections completed by 4 January 2013.

A guidance leaflet on various aspects of the inspection process also been produced and is available at

In Northern Ireland there will also be a phased introduction of the requirement for air conditioning. New installations will be inspected every 5 years. Systems over 250kW will be inspected by 4th January 2010 and those over 12kW by 4th January 2011.
