Certification of design (Section 6 - Energy) in non domestic buildings

BRE Scheme

BRE is a scheme provider for the Energy Certification of domestic and non-domestic (commercial) buildings in Scotland. These certification schemes are approved by Scottish Ministers to allow Approved Certifiers to prove that a building meets the energy standards and ensures new buildings are energy efficient with lower carbon emissions.

A building owner or developer may use a certificate of design to support an application for building warrant.

Individuals who want to join the scheme

Approved Certifiers of Design are qualified individuals allowed to certify the energy design of buildings in Scotland, and to issue certificates in support of applications to local authorities for Building Warrants and amendments to Warrants.

Individuals wishing to register as Approved Certifiers of Design (Section 6 - Energy) for Non Domestic or Domestic Buildings need (as a minimum), to be suitably qualified in the energy design of buildings. Training courses that covers all of Section 6 of the Building Regulations need to be undertaken by applicants. Individuals, who are already qualified in energy design, may be exempt from some elements of the training.

Please consult the Scheme before booking onto training. Candidates are not guaranteed an award of membership even if they successfully complete the training and exam requirements. It is important to gain guidance that the course programme is suitable for your requirements.  All applicants need to demonstrate competency by passing an examination.

Annual membership fees apply for membership of the ACD Schemes.

Registration of an individual is for a 3 year period initially.  Thereafter, individuals may be re-registered, providing they have met all scheme requirements as set out in the relevant Scheme Document. After successful audit and re-registration on the Scheme will be confirmed for a further 3 year period.
