Privately rented listed buildings and those in conservation areas may apply for an exemption from the legal requirement for an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). In these cases, they would be out of scope of Minimum Energy Efficiency Standard Regulations.

The Department consulted last year on whether to require an EPC for listed buildings and those in a conservation area. A Government Response will be published in due course.
