As you will know there is a requirement for all DEAs and HIs to pass an ‘upskill exam’ by 1 April should you wish to continue lodging EPC reports in England and Wales after this date.

If you have already passed the exam and sent a colour copy of your certificate to us, thank you.  If you have passed the ABBE exam and we registered you for the exam, you do not need to send anything further as ABBE will have told us that you passed the exam.
