Non Domestic EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) is a report required for all non-dwellings upon construction, sale or rent and was introduced using a phased approach from 6 April 2008
A Qualified and Accredited Assessor is required
Snapr only uses accredited assessors from the Government Non Domestic EPC Register
All Large Office, Retail, Industrial and government buildings
Please note you are responsible for selecting the correct sized EPC and may not be able to change your selection on the day
The EPC shows the energy efficiency rating of a non-dwelling. the rating is shown on an A-G rating scale similar that those used for fridges and other electrical appliances.
The Non Domestic EPC includes recommendations on how to improve the energy efficiency. There is currently no statutory requirement to carry out any of the recommended energy efficiency measures stated. The EPC may also include information showing which of these measures would be eligible for finance under the Green Deal Scheme, if required.
EPC's for non-dwellings must be produced by an accredited non domestic epc register energy assessor, who is a member of a government approved commercial epc register accreditation scheme.
The seller or landlord must provide an non domestic epc free of charge to a prospective buyer or tenant at the earliest opportunity. A copy of the EPC from the non domestic epc register must also be provided to the successful buyer or the person who takes up the tenancy. Additionally, Real Estate actors such as Estate Agents and Letting Agents or other third parties must ensure that an EPC has been commissioned before they can market a property for sale or rent.
EPCs are valid for 10 years and can be reused as required within that period. A new EPC is not required each time there is a change of tenancy, or the property is sold, provided it is no more than 10 years old. Where more than one is produced, the most recent EPC is the valid one.
All advertisements in the commercial media must clearly show the energy rating of the building (where available)
Non Domestic EPC's must be displayed in commercial premises larger than 500m2 that are frequently visited by the public, and where one has previously been produced for sale, construction or renting out of the building.
Eg. Medium to large commercial building
Eg. Non-remote, small to medium sized premises
or 8p per sq ft (which ever is greater)
