Once an Accredited Assessor has submitted the rating for your premises, our technical officers or independent parties will perform a Level 1 and Level 2 (if selected) audit on the submitted rating.
A Level 1 audit is conducted in 100% of NABERS rating applications. Our technical team carry out these audits to ensure NABERS Assessors have correctly applied the rules, and not made any data-entry errors.
It takes our team an average of 6 working days to complete a Level 1 audit.
A Level 2 Audit is conducted in 5% of all NABERS submitted ratings as well as 5% of ratings used to obtain a Building Energy Efficiency Certificate (BEEC) under the Commercial Building Disclosure. All Level 2 audits are carried out by external auditors.
The Level 2 audit process involves re-rating the premises, using documentation provided by the Assessor who conducted the original rating. From time to time, this can lead to a NABERS rating being revised or withdrawn. Assessors can also receive sanctions for unsatisfactory performance as identified through this process.
