SAP10 Software Delay

Government approved accreditation bodies have been working hard on getting Design SAP 10 ready for the implementation of Part L 2021 for England later this month. This involves going through a rigorous approval process, managed by BRE on behalf of BEIS, which requires all software providers to calculate and match results for a number of standard test cases provided by BRE.

The test cases have seen some delays and corrections, and therefore to ensure SAP software is ready for 15th June the approval process has now been changed. BRE has now provided three batches of test cases prioritised to cover the majority of technologies expected to be used in new homes. BEIS and DLUHC have authorised SAP software products for limited release to users when at least batch one is approved by BRE. Where SAP software is not yet approved for a batch, the technologies within that batch should not be used for completing SAP assessments or compliance calculations under SAP 10.2.

When Design SAP 10 is ready for release we will confirm which batches we are approved for and Government envisage that full capability, for all software providers, will be available no later than 31st July 2022.
