The Association has prepared a response to proposed revisions to the CHP Quality Assurance (CHPQA) Scheme.

The consultation document presents proposals for modifications to the CHPQA Standard and Guidance Note 44 (GN44), which are necessary to incorporate the EU’s updated energy efficiency reference values. It invites stakeholder comments on these, and lays out the next steps for implementing the proposed changes. 

The proposal is that the revised X and Y coefficients will apply to new Schemes that receive CHPQA certification on or after 1 January 2017, and Schemes that receive an F3 CHPQA certificate for the first time between 1 January and 31 December 2016. Existing Schemes that received CHPQA certification prior to 1 January 2016 will be unaffected by the proposed changes. 

The Association's response is available here.
