The workshop is ideal for public and private sector building owners and FMs who are responsible for data collection required for EPC auditing purposes.

About EPCs:

To boost energy efficiency in South Africa, non-residential buildings will be required to track and display their energy consumption with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) by December 2025. 

The EPC process can be broken into two main steps – the collection of energy data in preparation for the EPC (which will need to be done by building owners and facilities managers or the professionals they contract to do this) and the auditing of the energy data by a SANAS accredited Inspection Body. Certificates will be submitted to SANEDI and will be issued by the SANAS accredited inspection bodies.


Public and private sector building owners and facilities managers who will be required to collect the information to be submitted timeously for auditing AND organizations/individuals wishing to become SANAS Accredited Inspection Bodies or Registered Professional
