Introducing SBEM 5.2 in Wales

We have recently received the transitional arrangements for version 4.1.e and version 5.2.d of SBEM for Part L compliance and Energy Performance Certificates in Wales. The arrangements follow the revisions to Part L that come into effect from 31st July 2014.

The transitional provisions in the Building Regulations require that applications submitted under Part L 2010 prior to 31 July 2014, will be able to continue to progress through to completion using SBEM  4.1.e, including for lodgement of the EPC, provided works commences before 31 July 2015. Applications lodged for building control approval on 31 July 2014 or later will need to be processed using SBEM 5.2.d, including for lodgement of the EPC.

For further details see:

and

EPCs for existing non domestic buildings that are lodged on or after 31 July 2014 should be prepared using SBEM 5.2.d. There will however be a transitional period of one month from 31 July when it will be permissible to use SBEM version 4.1.e for EPC lodgements.
