PropCert completes EPCs nationally through a network of accredited energy assessors.

Their clients require energy performance certificates and PropCert covers every UK postcode. PropCert partners with ecmk as their accreditation body in order to lodge EPCs, provide technical support and quality auditing.

PropCert has invested significantly in technology so that we have a bespoke portal that allows our clients, often estate agents and local authorities, an easy solution for placing orders for EPCs and other property services.
