A consultation on the proposed changes to the Government’s Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP)

The Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) is used to assess the energy performance of dwellings and thereby helps deliver many of Government’s energy and environmental policy objectives.

A consultation is being undertaken on proposed changes to SAP to make a revised version of the methodology (SAP 2012), which is anticipated to come into operation in 2013.

There are a number of documents that form a part of this SAP consultation.  The key one is the revised SAP specification but there are also some technical documents that provide details of the reasoning behind the main changes.  All of these documents can be accessed at http://www.bre.co.uk/sap2012

Comments are invited and should be sent to sap2012@bre.co.uk not later than 28 March 2012.
