We have put together an FAQ to answer the most important questions about energy performance vertificates (EPCs) in Malta.
An energy performance certificate (EPC) rates the energy performance of a property on a scale of A-G and gives advice on how the building can be more energy efficient. An EPC is required by Maltese law and needs to be presented to the tenant or the buyer.
An EPC can be obtained from an Energy Performance of Buildings (EPB) assessor who is registered with the Building Regulation Office (BRO).
The BRO charges a registration fee of € 75 for each certificate. There is no standard fee for an EPC as the assessor sets the fee independently.
An energy performance certificate is valid for 10 years.
If you fail to provide an EPC to the Building Regulation Office, you may incur a fine of € 500 – € 5000.
