Submitter statement for
non-domestic energy
submissions (v.1)
SBEM
FI-SBEM
DSM
Purpose of submitter statement
Non-certified route
Where a Section 6 Energy carbon dioxide submission (SBEM or equivalent) is submitted following the non-certified route
as part of a building warrant application, the submitter is tasked with completing this statement, with the aim of supporting
the local authority verifier in undertaking reasonable enquiry for the project. The information provided will assist the verifier
build a risk rating for the submission, which in turn will inform the verifier as to the extent of checking suitable for assessing
the submission and for undertaking site inspection(s) of the building(s).
Certified route (Certificate of Design for Energy)
Where the Section 6 Energy carbon dioxide submission follows the certified route, the submitter is tasked with completing
this statement to assist the verifier undertake reasonable enquiry when undertaking site inspection(s) of the building(s).
1. Qualifications and training
The submitter is requested to confirm possession of qualifications and training appropriate for assessing the energy
performance of the proposed building(s). Additionally, when following the non-certified route, details of the checking
procedure applied within the submitter’s organisation are required for the risk assessment.

If Yes, detail Approved Organisation membership
3. Appendix - Servicing strategy and Critical elements
In the Servicing strategy, the submitter should select the broad category that best describes the serving to the building(s).
In the Critical elements appendix, the submitter should communicate the aspects of the submission that contribute most
significantly to achieving a pass, or alternatively aspects if omitted from the as-built building(s) which would cause a fail.
Items listed as critical elements may then be flagged for targeted inspection(s) by the verifier during construction on site.
4. Declaration
In signing the declaration, the submitter is confirming that:
to the best of his or her knowledge, the submission contains no errors or omissions,
that all the relevant conventions (dimensions, zoning, defaults etc.) detailed in the relevant guidance have been followed
when preparing the submission, and
disclosure of all information relevant to the submission has been communicated to the verifier in a transparent manner.

Appendix - Servicing strategy
The most appropriate servicing strategy should be selected for the proposal (the broad categories of environmental control
listed below are summarised from the NCM Modelling Guide for Non-Domestic Buildings):
Servicing strategy
Additional details
Tick
a)
Unheated
-
b)
Heated only, with natural
ventilation
1)
Low complexity heating system.
2)
High complexity heating system, e.g. bivalent heating (twin system, such as heat pump and
boiler combination), complex controls, complex thermal storage arrangements.
c)
Heated and mechanically
ventilated
1)
Local/decentralised ventilation plant, e.g. local extract ventilation (with/without heat recovery).
2)
Centralised ventilation plant, e.g. centralised extract ventilation plant serving multiple rooms.
3)
Either of the above plus high complexity heating system.
d)
Heated and cooled (air-
conditioned)
1)
Local/decentralised air-conditioning plant, e.g. split and multi-split systems.
2)
Centralised air-conditioning plant.
3)
Either of the above plus high complexity heating system.
e)
Mixed-mode cooling
1)
Cooling operates only in peak season to prevent space temperatures exceeding a threshold
temperature higher than that normally provided by an air-conditioning system.
f)
Ventilation with enhanced
thermal coupling to the
structure
1)
Significant components of the building structure (e.g. ducts in the solid floors of the building)
are exposed to night ventilation in order to enhance the building's capability of offsetting
daytime cooling demands.
Additional notes (if required):
Appendix - Critical elements
Where appropriate, details of the critical elements should encompass consideration of the constructional elements (including
any highly efficient thermal bridging values, lower than notional values), heating/cooling/ventilation systems, hot water
services, shading and blinds, high efficiency lighting and controls, and energy production technologies. Where specific
models of installations are required (e.g. lamp types), their significance should be highlighted to assist site inspection(s). It is
not expected that contributions at or close to standard guidance values will be listed as critical elements. The details
provided may be as concise or as comprehensive as the submitter considers appropriate to the building type(s) and
complexity of the submission.
