TrustMark / IAA update

Further Extension to the TrustMark Data Warehouse Lodgement Flexibility Agreement

The IAA on your behalf has been positioning for changes in the PAS 2030-19 and PAS 2035 transition arrangements and once again TrustMark have listened to the concerns of the industry, extending the data warehouse lodgement flexibility during this very difficult time for the industry.

TrustMark have recently updated the TrustMark Data Warehouse Lodgement Flexibility Agreement to take into account the recent crisis.
The impact of the COVID-19 lockdown period has been reported as having a significant effect on the 60-day flexibility agreement originally published on 27th March 2020.

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 lockdown period and its restrictions a refreshed agreement becomes effective from 3rd June 2020 and succeeds the initial flexibility agreement which commenced 3rd April 2020.

This new agreement provides those business who have a backlog of work commenced under PAS 2030:2017 and were transitioned to PAS 2030:2019 on or before 3rd April 2020 a further 60 days to lodge those measures as PAS 2030:2017 compliant.

This will mean that businesses that have already transitioned to PAS 2030:19 get an additional 60 days from 3rd June. This is because the 60 days from 3rd April to 3rd June have been impacted by the recent COVID 19 crisis and lockdown rules. Businesses that transition after 3rd June get 60 days. This takes into account the easing of lockdown restrictions.

PAS 2035:2019 - Reduction of Inherent Technical Risk Scores of Energy Efficiency Measures Through the Use of TrustMark Recognised Industry Quality Assurance Schemes

PAS 2035:2019 Annex B Clause B.2 introduces a mechanism that permits the reduction of inherent technical risk scores for a measure(s) where a closely defined criteria is met.  Where the intended Retrofit Installer operates under an ‘industry quality assurance scheme’ that has the features as listed in the relevant section of the PAS, a reduction of the inherent technical risk scores by one for the measure(s) covered by that scheme is permitted.  Please see the applicable sections of PAS 2035:2019 on the TrustMark website for further information.

TrustMark, working closely with Retrofit Coordinator Scheme Providers and the wider interested parties, has agreed that a consistent approach must be in place so that a TrustMark Registered Retrofit Coordinator considering this provision of the PAS works to a common consistent standard.

TrustMark currently recognise 2 organisations that are delivering such industry quality assurance schemes as permitted by PAS 2035:2019 one of which is the CIGA guarantee under the quality assurance framework for The IAA.  Retrofit Coordinators can recognise this scheme when deciding whether a valid reduction by one can be made to inherent technical risk score for the respective measure(s) within a project.
