DCLG Letter - September 2013
SAP Conventions v5.0- September 2013
These updated conventions must be applied by all Schemes by 1st October 2013. The conventions will be included in future quality assurance checks thereafter. Any EPCs lodged after the implementation date must, therefore, follow these conventions.
The conventions are designed to improve the quality and accuracy of SAP Energy Performance Certificates. The conventions will, therefore, supersede any previous assessment process and previously published guidance. With this in mind, further conventions are being developed and will be released in stages.
