Tools: Use of reissued tools

The most up-to-date version ofΒ an excel tool should be downloaded from the BREEAM Assessor’s Extranet when a new assessment is started. If an updated tool is subsequently released then it will not be necessary to use the updated tool instead of the version already being used. The assessor can choose to use the updated tool if they wish.
When new tool versions are released, assessors are notified through the monthly Process Note. We would expect AssessorsΒ to review the ‘Schedule of Changes’ tab when an updated tool is released. IfΒ fundamental changes have been made to the tool and they will affect the results for the issue in question please contact BRE for guidance.
