EPC Assessment / The Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES)
The UK Regulation Changes in the form of The Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) require non-domestic buildings to be EPC C rated by 2027 & EPC B rated by 2030, or provide a valid exemption. Landlords can be fined up to £150,000 where they have breached regulations.
