EU (Energy Performance of Buildings) Regulations 2012 S.I. No. 243 of 2012
S.I. No. 243 of 2012 requires that:
Enforcement of the above aspects of the regulations is the responsibility of local Building Control Authorities, each of whom may take such steps as are reasonably necessary for the purpose of verifying compliance with the regulations by obligated persons operating within their functional areas. Such steps may typically include, inter alia, requesting copies of BER certificates and advisory reports from Building Owners (or from any agents they may have engaged to act on their behalf) as well as seeking any evidence deemed necessary to demonstrate compliance with the advertising requirements.
SEAI are responsible for the day to day administration of the BER system and have separate enforcement powers as authorized officers under the regulations in respect of their functions.
