E-newsletter November 2018

Dear Colleague,

Welcome to the November edition of our CIBSE Certification newsletter. I hope that you find the content of this newsletter useful.

Final Renewals Reminder 2018/19Pay online now

The deadline for 2018/19 renewals has now passed. If you are still yet to pay, please do so before the end of November to avoid the reinstatement fee of £50 (+ VAT). You can access your invoice and pay your registration fees online in your MyCIBSE portal.
NB. Please note that even if you pay your registration fee your certificates and ID cards will only be issued when your registration meets the compliance requirements, so you may still be suspended. 
If you have any questions regarding your registration and compliance requirements please email epc@cibsecertification.org.

New EPC Software Versions

CIBSE Certification has been informed of an important update in the EPC software that will affect lodgements after the 9th of October 2018. The ability to create xml files and lodge Non-Domestic EPCs using SBEM version 5.4.a for England and Wales will be switched off.

We advise our EPC assessors to update their software to the latest version at their earliest convenience.

For i-SBEM users, the latest versions of i-SBEM for all regions are available at https://www.uk-ncm.org.uk, the third-party software users should contact their software providers and ask for instructions on how to update their software packages to the latest version.

Kind regards,

Professor Andrew Geens
