Purchasing BREEAM In-Use credits

Online Payment – Credit/Debit card

The quickest route to obtaining BREEAM In-Use International credits for Measurement, Certification, Renewal and Mid-cycle certification, is to purchase these online and paying by credit/debit card.


To purchase a measurement credit, you will need to be logged in to the Client organisation account that will be making the registration.

To purchase any certification credits, you will need to be logged in to the individual Assessor account who will be completing the assessment and submitting for QA and Certification. (Please remember that Assessor logins should never be shared with other individuals within the same company or externally KBCN0742)

An email receipt of the payment is issued following the purchase online.

Manual Cost Proposal and Invoice

If you are unable to purchase credits online using the card payment option, these can be processed via a manual cost proposal and invoice. The cost proposal request form should be completed in full to provide all the relevant details to enable the cost proposal to be created.

The manual cost proposal request form is available to download from the ‘Purchase Credits’ page of the BREEAM In-Use online system. Assessors can also download a copy from BREEAM Projects, Documents and Tools within the BREEAM In-Use folder.

Please be aware that the manual cost proposal and invoicing route is much slower than purchasing with a credit/debit card. The timescale for creating a cost proposal is 3-5 working days from the date the request form is submitted. The cost proposal is then sent to the contact on the cost proposal request and acceptance of the proposal and signature is required.

The signed cost proposal is then returned to [email protected] and an invoice will be processed and the credits added to the accounts detailed in the original request (once the invoice is paid). The timescale for processing a signed cost proposal is 3-5 working days before the invoice is issued. Credits will be added following payment of the invoice.

If you require the credits to be added urgently then the online payment route should be followed.
