A consultation is being undertaken on proposed changes to the Standard Assessment Procedure for Energy Rating of Dwellings (SAP).

Comments should be made by 28 March 2012.

For details please go to

The government has also published the consultations for changes to several sections of the Building Regulations - including Part L - as well as proposed changes to the Building Control system.

The Part L changes include proposals for tighter carbon dioxide emission standards for new homes (Introduction of a target fabric energy efficiency standard) and requirements for additional energy efficiency improvement (consequential improvements) to existing homes when extensions are built.

There are also proposed changes to Part P, on electrical safety in dwellings, and Parts A, B, C. K, M and N.

The consultation on adoption of consequential improvements ends on March 27, one month earlier than the other consultations which run to April 27.

The consultations are available at:

The website has now gone live so you can download cSAP and cSBEM for use with the Part L 2013 consultation packages.

There are also worked examples on the Zero Carbon Hub website of how to comply with the fabric standards:
