Response

The enforcement of the Energy Efficiency (Private Rented Property) (England and Wales) Regulations 2015 for non-domestic properties, i.e. commercial properties, lies with the local weights and measures authority.  Therefore, within Cumbria, the enforcement authority is Cumbria County Council, Trading Standards. As such the request for information should be re-directed to that organisation.
