New EPC Software Versions

CIBSE Certification has been informed of an important update in the EPC software that will affect lodgements after the 20th November 2016.

In order to generate XML files that match the requirements of the new XSD schema, the EPCgen module for both the England and Wales (E&W) and Northern Ireland (NI) versions have been updated.

As a result, patches have been issues for the current versions of the software.

For the i-sbem users, patches are available on http://www.uk-ncm.org.uk/ . For all other 3rd party software users, we would advise you to liaise with your software providers to ensure that your software will produce the xml files Landmark would expect, with the right certificates.

Please note that all the above only affect the software running on EPCgen versions v4.1.e and v5.2.d. These changes have already been implemented on version v5.2.g software and no action is required when using this software version.

We would also like to inform you that new software versions are been published and tested with a view to go live and be mandatory for EPC lodgements after the 20th of February 2017. These are versions v4.1.g and v5.3.a, which are already available for i-sbem on http://www.uk-ncm.org.uk/ and should be available soon for all other 3rd party software vendors. The main changes in these new software version are related to Primary Energy and a couple of corrections regarding the Thermal Capacity (Kappa) value associated with walls and roofs in the Notional Building.
