Independent experts: Implementation of Article 10 England and Wales

An energy assessor must be a member of a specialist accreditation scheme approved by the Government. Each accreditation scheme is responsible for ensuring that energy assessors are suitably qualified to conduct energy assessments and for ensuring the quality of the assessments and any certificates or reports produced (including their independence).

A list of schemes approved by the Government to accredit assessors, either by the Qualification or the APEL (approved prior experiential learning) routes can be found at:

http://www.communities.gov.uk/planningandbuilding/theenvironment/e nergyperformance/energyassessment/accreditation/

Details of the minimum requirements that assessors must satisfy can be found at the same location. Accreditation Schemes will be responsible for maintaining and demonstrating quality assurance procedures.

Scotland

For existing buildings, EPCs must be produced by a member of a professional body with whom the Scottish government has entered into protocol. Each approved organisation is responsible for ensuring that their members are suitably qualified to conduct energy assessments and for ensuring the quality of the assessments and any certificates or reports produced (including their independence). A similar approach has been adopted for experts to do the air-conditioning inspections.

Northern Ireland Northern Ireland has adopted a similar approach to that in England and Wales. Details of approved Accreditation Schemes can be found at

Enforcement

In England and Wales the enforcement of the regulations is the responsibility of the Building Control/Trading Standards Officers in the Local Authority/District Council area where the building is located.

In Scotland, responsibility for enforcement lies with the Local Authority. If compliance is not achieved, the local authority can take action which may include serving notice, carrying out the work and recovering costs. Failure
