The Energy Performance of Buildings (England and Wales) (Amendment) Regulations 2017
Regulation 3 amends the fees for entering data onto the register of energy performance certificates, display energy certificates and air conditioning inspection reports kept under regulation 27 (registration of certificates etc) of the principal regulations.
Regulation 4 adds items to Schedule B1 (specified data items for online publication) to the principal regulations, which lists items taken from the bulk data, that is the whole set of data in relation to any building that is entered onto the register in relation to the production of certificates and reports.
The keeper of the register may publish any of those items on a website in accordance with regulation 30A (publication of bulk access data on a website) of the principal regulations, unless the building is the subject of an opt-out by the owner or occupier in accordance with regulation 30(3) (disclosure of general access data).
DID YOU KNOW?
Power presses are power driven mechanical presses which have a flywheel and a clutch and are used wholly or partly to work cold metal.
A person needs to be appointed to set tools and carryout a simple inspection of the press during every working shift.
The Inspection frequencies for power presses and brakes must be inspected with a thorough examination every 6 months for those fitted with interlocking, automatic or photo-electric guards, fences. Items with fixed fences must be examined every 12 months. There is no flexibility in the regulations to apply a risk-based approach.
Hydraulic presses do not fall into the scope of PUWER part IV but should be treated as such under best practice.
Where do we find power presses? If you are responsible for any of the below type of facilities it is highly likely you will have power presses on your estate.
