Recognising future performance

BREEAM In-Use recognises an asset’s operational performance at the time of certification.

Compliance cannot be based on commitments to improve the performance of an asset in the future.

Where changes to an asset are made during a 3-year certification cycle:

  • BREEAM In-Use V6 allows the asset’s mid-cycle performance to be updated and reflected in an updated certificate.
  • Legacy versions of BREEAM In-Use recognise updated performance via re-certification.
