The chapter firstly gives a thorough overview of the standards and procedures which an auditor is required to follow, before demonstrating how the information is accessed and the audit started. The video then goes on to show how an auditor calculates whether or not an assessment would be classified as defective, then finally shows how the feedback is provided to the assessor once the audit is completed.
Chapter five: Using RdSAP Reccomendations (120723)
Recommendations are an essential element of the EPC and with the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards having been introduced they are taking on ever more importance in the EPC process.
As such it is vital that assessors have a firm understanding of how the recommendation process works and at what point various recommendations will be recommended.
This chapter focuses on identifying where the RdSAP Recommendations can be found, where to find the recommendations within the Specification, how to identify Recommendation selection criteria. It will also cover the important areas of determining what circumstances are needed for a particular recommendation to be shown, determining what would need to be completed to remove the recommendation, how to use the information to explain recommendations to clients and how to resolve issues relating to the EPC recommendations.
