EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend, for certain purposes, the date on which regulation 42 of the Green Deal Framework (Disclosure, Acknowledgment, Redress etc.) Regulations 2012 (“the Framework Regulations”) comes into force.

By virtue of regulation 1 of the Framework Regulations, regulation 42 comes into force on 28th January 2013. The amendments made by these Regulations bring forward that date for the purpose of enabling provision to be made under sections 9 and 10 of the Energy Act 2011 (c. 16) (“the Act”). For all remaining purposes, regulation 42 will continue to come into force on 28th January 2013.

Section 9 of the Act enables the Secretary of State to amend the Energy Performance of Buildings (Certificates and Inspections) (England and Wales) Regulations 2007 (S.I. 2007/991) and the Building Regulations 2010 (S.I. 2010/2214) for Green Deal-related purposes. Section 10 of the Act contains a similar power for the Scottish Ministers to amend the Energy Performance of Buildings (Scotland) Regulations 2008 (S.S.I. 2008/309).

A full regulatory impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no impact on the private or voluntary sectors is foreseen. However, this instrument amends the Framework Regulations, which are one of a number of statutory instruments which establish the green deal energy efficiency scheme. A full regulatory impact assessment of the effect that that scheme will have on the costs of business and the voluntary sector is available from the Green Deal Legislation Team, Department of Energy and Climate Change at 3 Whitehall Place, London SW1A 2AW and is published alongside the Framework Regulations on www.legislation.gov.uk.
