Energy Performance Certificates

Buildings that require a Display Energy Certificate (DEC)

A Display Energy Certificate (DEC) and advisory report are required by buildings that:

  • Have a total useful floor space exceeding 250m2
  • Are occupied by public authorities
  • Are frequently visited by the public

For the purposes of a GP practice the definition of a public building is likely to include surgery premises, as GP practices are in receipt of public funds and provide a public service to large numbers of people who visit regularly. 

Displaying a DEC

From July 2015 occupiers of buildings meeting the above requirements must prominently display a DEC in an area visible to the public. They must also possess a valid advisory report which details recommendations to improve the building’s energy performance. The DEC certificate should be no smaller than A3 in size to enable easy viewing by the public.
