Implementing the recommendations

Following publication of the Each Home Counts report, an Implementation Board is now working to develop action plans and timelines against the recommendations. These implementation plans will propose the structure and functions of the quality mark including the strategic governance board and service organisation to undertake the day-to-day functions of the quality mark.

This is an industry led Review and government will work with industry to understand how the sector proposes to implement the recommendations of the Review. Industry partners have the knowledge and experience to determine how best to take this work forward. Implementation will be overseen by the Implementation Board.

Stakeholder participation in the development of the implementation plans is welcomed via the workstream leads. The industry leads will share relevant information across the workstreams to ensure synchronisation and report their progress to the Implementation Board.

As part of the implementation process, a set of workstreams have been created. Click on the icons below to see the latest updates for each workstream.

Key actions carried out so far include:

  • Revisions to PAS 2030 and PAS 2031 standards, published in February  2017 ready for ECO: Help to Heat
  • Standards mapping exercise to identify gaps in existing standards or where standards need to be more robust standards
  • Establishment of a Retrofit Standards Task Group
  • Scoping the future of ESAS, including how this will link to the Information Hub proposed by the Review.
