BREEAM In-Use is designed to help building managers and owners reduce the running costs and improve the environmental performance of existing buildings. The scheme uses an assessment tool that can be completed by building managers and owners to self-assess their buildings. These self-assessments have to be audited by independent BREEAM In-Use assessors before certification can be granted.
To become a BREEAM In-Use assessor you need to complete the online learning, attend a two day course, pass the examination and take out a BREEAM In-Use licence. To become licensed, assessors are required to hold professional indemnity insurance. For more information please see our FAQ page.
