  • Owing to low participation rates for the voluntary Energy Efficiency Registration Scheme for Buildings, the government has drafted a legal framework for mandatory implementation of the Building Energy Codes. Under the scheme, affected buildings will be required to follow compliance procedures. New buildings will be affected immediately. Older buildings will be affected following certain retrofitting works.
