Incorrect qualifications

Submitted by: MikeC (Admin) on 04-Aug-09 02:46:01 PM

According to the BEEB’s website, the NI Law Society has written to members warning that:

…some businesses supplying EPCs may not have the correct qualifications to provide valid certificate in all cases.

This, it said, is because there are two different qualifications for EPC assessors.

BBC NEWS | Northern Ireland | Warning over energy rating scheme

The inference being that some DEAs may be supplying EPCs for on-construction property, and/or, On-Construction Energy Assessors (OCEAs) for existing dwellings.

No specific instances are mentioned, though, which makes me wonder whether it’s just a bit of scaremongering, or them making a national issue out of a local rogue-trader. In which case, the Law Society know what to do; contact the appropriate accreditation scheme.

So a bit of scaremongering then.
