EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Energy Performance of Buildings (Scotland) Regulations 2008 (“the 2008 Regulations”). The 2008 Regulations transpose the provisions of recast Directive 2010/31/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council on the energy performance of buildings (OJ L 153, 18.06.2010, p.13).

These Regulations increase the fees payable under regulation 10A of the 2008 Regulations in respect of the entering of the energy performance data onto the register. The fee is increased from £1.15 to £2.60 where the data relates to a dwelling and from £5.36 to £12.10 where the data relates to another type of building or building unit.
