Enforcement of Air Conditioning Assessment Reports

Nov 12th, 2013 By JE | Category:  TM44 Enforcement

ACI Reports is able highlight that there are “moves afoot” to strengthen the enforcement of Air Conditioning Assessment Reports, with CIBSE and Accreditation bodies starting a new drive to push the DCLG into greater enforcement of the TM44 Air Conditioning Assessment Regulations. The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) has highlighted a significant case where the lack of enforcement of Energy Performance of Building Regulations (EPB Regulations) has cost taxpayers 5.7m. At a time when energy policy is one of the most serious issues facing government, CIBSE argues that this non-compliance can be overlooked no longer.

Dr Hywel Davies, CIBSE technical director, stresses in a column in the CIBSE Journal (November 2013), that Landmark Information Group will be receiving £5.7m compensation relating to a contract to run the national energy certificate register awarded in 2007, and extended to cover lodgement of air conditioning inspection reports in 2012. Landmark's revenues are short of what it costs to run the register, and this is now to be used as a lever towards demands for increased enforcement.

CIBSE has announced it will convene a special EPB Regulations Non-Compliance Roundtable before the end of this year to address the matter and will be inviting interested parties to attend. The Roundtable will also discuss the necessity of an ongoing Task Force to help government address this critical issue. ACI Reports Ltd, one of the largest Consultancies in this sector, is advising those Companies that have been avoiding getting TM44 Assessments in place to take action now. It is highly likely that AC Inspections will become a hot topic as we approach year end.
