All Domestic energy assessors are required to follow conventions.  

Conventions are basically the rules we follow when collecting and inputting data onto the software.  It’s all about gaining a consistent methodology and/or procedure for assessors to follow when producing an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC).  All regions of the UK follow the same conventions.

Elmhurst Energy provide easy access to the current conventions in the ‘My documents’ area of the software.  Elmhurst even provide a technical bulletin dedicated to conventions, this is much more user friendly than the official convention document and provides some examples and explanation.

It’s really important for assessors to follow the current conventions and when an audit is called the auditor will check the conventions have been followed.

The Building Research Establishment (BRE) are responsible for providing and updating the conventions on a regular basis.
