A few things to make sure are up-to-date include: 

  • Your contact details, including work information
  • Your CPD record
  • Your insurance records
  • Signed code of conduct

From Tuesday 1 September you will be able to access your invoice and pay your registration fees online. A reminder notification will be sent on this date.

NB. Please note that even if you pay your registration fee we will only be sending certificates and ID cards if your registration meets the compliance requirements, so you may still be suspended. 
If you have any questions regarding your renewal please call the team on +44 (0)208 772 3649 or email epc@cibsecertification.org.
New Register

As mentioned in previous newsletters, MHCLG are developing a new EPC/DEC/ACI register for England, Wales and N. Ireland. During this process opportunities for improvements have been identified which resulted in a delay to the launch date. Currently, there is a view that the register will be live at some point in September.

We will continue to keep you all up to date when more details are available.

Government Air Conditioning Software withdrawal
I wrote to air conditioning assessors during May, but in case that was missed by anyone I will repeat the message here.

MHCLG will no longer be supporting the DCLG Air Con Report software.

Future Webinars

Thank you to everyone that has been supporting our webinar series, it has been well attended. I think that we have been able to provide interesting and informative material from the attendance that we have seen. We are fortunate to work in a vibrant and forward-looking community willing to share their knowledge and expertise. So, you know what comes next.  

I am sure that we have not exhausted the well and that there are many of you out there that are keen to participate but did not want to go first.

Please get in touch if you have an idea for a webinar that you would like to share. As usual email me at epc@cibsecertification.org

Kind regards,

Professor Andrew Geens
