RPSA calls for inquiry into energy assessment issues


One of its members obtained information showing nearly one in eight of the 10,000-plus registered DEAs are currently suspended.

Suspensions can occur due to breach of regulations, such as failure to update a CPD record, or failing an energy performance certificate audit.

RPSA chairman Alan Milstein described the situation as “chaotic”, with an over-supply of DEAs impacting prices and quality, compounded by a “draconian and haphazard” auditing process.
