Impact Assessment of merger of Regulation 17 and EPC CO2
emission calculation proposals - Final Impact Assessment
This final impact assessment document
contains proposals on how to simplify the duplication of CO2
calculations and schemes, thereby making more efficient use of
Under the current building regulations provisions there are
two types of schemes set up for the calculation of CO2 emission
rates in new buildings.
The objective of the proposal is to simplfy the duplication
of calculations and schemes as far as possible, thereby making
more efficient use of resources. It is also hoped by achieving
these primary objectives, compliance with this area of building
regulations would be increased as a result of improved
simplicity of the process.
This final impact assessment paper updates the
initial impact assessment paper which supported
the consultation paper: Simplified arrangements for
production of CO2 emission rate calculations for new buildings
under the Building Regulations 2000 .
