All of our Assessors are FULLY QUALIFIED and ACCREDITED. Our reports are regularly audited, including by BRE, to ensure they are accurate and comply with all relevant REGULATIONS.
Commercial EPCs are required upon construction, sale or lease for all non-dwellings, this includes
small retail outlets, offices, industrial units and Public Buildings. Responsibility for enforcement in
newly built properties will fall to Building Control, whilst Trading Standards departments will
enforce certification of existing buildings.
The Legislation does permit for some Exemptions and we can provide information on these and
provide an Exemption Certificate to enable the property to be sold or let with confidence.

Validity of EPC and RR reports
The EPC and RR reports are valid for 10 years subject to no alterations to the building (modifications to buildings that create greater or fewer parts designed or altered for separate use and where that modification includes the provision or extension of any of the fixed services for heating, hot water, air conditioning or mechanical ventilation).
Making the Most of Your EPC / Carbon Trust Interest Free Loans Available
Implementing the recommendations in your report will reduce the running cost of the building by decreasing its energy demand.
At Fading Footprints Ltd, we are able to calculate the financial payback period of these recommendations, their Energy Impact, their Co2 Impact and the Co2 saved per £ spent. We can also use our experience of working with the Carbon Trust to assess whether these changes can be funded by the Interest free loans currently available through them. By reducing your energy consumption you will reduce your expenditure on fuel as well as being able to send a powerful message to your stakeholders that you are taking steps to ensure your company is reducing its Carbon Footprint.
