‘Now is the chance to have your say on SAP’ says HHIC following the release of the public consultation on amendments to Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP)

Green Houses

The Heating & Hotwater Industry Council, HHIC today welcome the public consultation on proposals to amend the Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) published by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, BEIS as part of their Energy efficiency in buildings programme.

Stewart Clements, Director at HHC said “SAP ratings are an integral part of the heating industry and the chance to ‘have our say’ has been long awaited. It provides us with a great opportunity to help steer Government policy.

The consultation document which is open until the 27th January 2017 sets out 20 questions. For anyone in the industry, now is the time to have your say about how we calculate emission rates for buildings in the UK.

Over the coming weeks we will be engaging with our members on the proposed amendments and will respond to BEIS accordingly.”
