The Energy Companies Obligation (ECO) requires suppliers to deliver energy-efficiency measures (such as insulation) to domestic premises. As part of this ofgem-administered scheme, which runs alongside the Green Deal, suppliers must instruct suitably-qualified and independent agents to carry out technical monitoring on a sample of the ECO measures that they have installed.
The BBA is a leading independent Technical Monitoring Agent, with our own experienced and fully-trained inspectors who have excellent UK-wide coverage.
Technical monitoring is split into three sections, and is carried out at different stages of the installation:
- competence of operatives on site – carried out at the pre-installation/preparatory works stage and mid-installation stage
- scoring (compliance with ECO guidelines and legislation) – carried out at the post-installation stage
- installation standards (carbon/cost). There are quotas for inspections in order to make sure that complex measures, such as external wall insulation, are seen at all stages
With our substantial experience, skills and knowledge as a UKAS accredited inspection body No. 0357, assessing installer competence and compliance, we can help you meet Ofgem requirements under ECO.
