  • Have a total useful floor area greater than 250 m2
  • Be occupied by a public authority and frequently visited by the public

Display Energy Certificates are not required by private organisations, including those that may share a building with a relevant institution, but may elect to do so on a voluntary basis.

In January 2013, the Government lowered the floor area threshold for DECs from 1000m2to 500m2. This was lowered further in July 2015 to iclude properties with a floor area greater than 250 m2. Now, eligible properties with a floor area greater than 250 m2fall within the regulation.

However, there is a difference depending on what floor area bracket your building falls within:

Buildings with a floor area greater than (>) 1000m2

Where the building has a total useful floor area of more than 1,000m², the DEC is valid for 12 months.The accompanying advisory report is valid for seven years.

Buildings with a floor area between 999 m2– 250m2

Where the building has a total useful floor area of between 250m² and 1000m², the DEC and advisory report are valid for 10 years.

The building area measurement specified in the legislation is the Total Usable Floor Area (TUFA). This is the same as the Gross Internal Area (GIA) in common use in commercial property surveying, and for which measurement conventions are based on the RICS Code of Measuring Practice .

Private organisations, including those that may share a building with a relevant institution, do not need to display a DEC, but may elect to do so on a voluntary basis.
