What is an EPC and does it apply to my Company?

A: An EPC is a document which sets out a building’s energy rating.  That rating will be based on the performance potential of the building itself, i.e. its fabric and its services such as heating, ventilation and lighting and will range from A to G with A being very efficient and G being very inefficient.

Almost all commercial buildings require one in the following circumstances:

Situation Responsible Person
New builds Building Contractor
Sale of freehold Freehold seller
Buildings to be let Landlord
Assignment of a Lease Assignor
Lease of a building being sub-let Outgoing tenant
