Section 63

Section 63

Stroma Certification’s Section 63 Certification scheme is designed to help Non-Domestic Energy Assessors to lodge Section 63 Action Plans in Scotland. This is in line with new legislation for Scotland which came into force on 1st September 2016.

What is Section 63?

New legislation came into force in Scotland on 1st September 2016, which states that an additional assessment is required for all non-domestic buildings (over 1000m2). The assessment document created will be a Section 63 Action Plan. An EPC also remains a requirement for sale or rent of such a property.

Who is eligible?

Section 63 Certification is applicable to both Non-Domestic Energy Assessors (NDEAs) and DEC Assessors. Qualified NDEAs need to undergo a Section 63 training course in order to become a Section 63 Advisor.

EST Lodgement Fee - £5.36 (inc.VAT)

DEC/Advisory Report - £10.00 (+VAT)

EST Lodgement Fee - £5.36 (inc.VAT)

Section 63 Action Plan - £19.64-£24.64 (+VAT)

What is a Section 63 Action Plan?

The improvement measures within the Section 63 Action Plan are not compulsory and can be deferred. In this case, a qualified DEC Assessor can produce a DEC for the property on an annual basis.

Existing DEC Assessors must complete Stroma Certification’s DEC APEL course to provide this service.

What are the responsibilities of a Section 63 Advisor?

By joining Stroma’s Section 63 Certification scheme, an NDEA will be able to:

  • Explain the new Section 63 legislation to a customer
  • Produce a Non-Domestic EPC for the building
  • Produce a Section 63 Action Plan & agree improvement actions
  • Lodge the Section 63 Action Plan on the Scottish Register
  • Produce a new EPC once improvement measures have been accepted
